Store Locator

  • Will a merchant’s store name be listed on the SIGIS Merchant List?

    SIGIS has two merchant lists: first, the SIGIS IIAS Merchant List for merchants that are SIGIS-certified to process IIAS transactions, and second, the SIGIS 90% Rule Merchant List for merchants that have registered with SIGIS as meeting the IRS requirement as a store with 90% or more of gross sales from Rx/prescription and qualified medical products.

  • Does SIGIS support IIAS and 90% Rule processes for US Territories?

    US Territories US Virgin Islands (USVI), Guam, Marianas Islands / Saipan (CNMI) and American Samoa operate under a variety of US tax laws.  Some mirror the US tax law while others are separate and distinct.  In summary:

    • US Virgin Islands (USVI) and Guam operate under a mirrored US tax law that supports Section 125 Cafeteria plans and an IIAS.  SIGIS supports retailers and consumers in these markets via IIAS and 90% Rule programs.
    • Puerto Rico has its own tax code that does not currently recognize Section 125 Cafeteria plans and IIAS.  SIGIS does not support this market.
    • American Samoa and Marianas Islands / Saipan (CNMI) have a combination of US and Local tax laws in effect.  Further research is required to determine if Section 125 applies in these markets and the impact of local tax laws. At this time, SIGIS does not support these markets.

    While SIGIS processes may support these locations members and consumers should consult with their counsel and plan administrators that operate in these markets to determine support for FSA, HRA and HSA debit cards.
