The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association has teamed with Visa USA to offer a Blues-branded Visa debit card to patients to pay for health-related expenses. The card will be a central feature of consumer-directed health plans at participating Blues companies, the association said. Such plans combine high-deductible policies with a personal savings account for health expenses. The association said the card will work with health savings or flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements. -- by Cinda Becker
