ATLANTA, June 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- InComm, a leading prepaid product and payments technology company, today announced that two of its business units, InComm Healthcare & Affinity and InComm Digital Solutions*, have earned HITRUST CSF® Certification status for information security from HITRUST, a non-profit organization whose mission is to champion programs that safeguard sensitive information and manage information risk.
InComm Healthcare & Affinity's OTC Supplemental Benefit and Directed-Spend Incentive & Rewards card programs are HITRUST CSF Certified and meet key regulations and industry-defined requirements.

The Directed-Spend Incentive & Rewards program allows health plans to build a customized member incentive program around health and preventative behaviors, and deliver the rewards via a prepaid card used to purchase prequalified health and wellness items at retailers.
InComm Digital Solutions provides an innovative technology platform that allows brands and distributors to sell, promote and deliver gift card products in digital and physical formats. It also provides a robust web-based reporting administration tool (Back Office) that provides 24/7 access to detailed sales, order and transaction reporting.
"This certification underscores our deep commitment to serving our healthcare partners at the highest level," said Phil Graves, President of InComm. "They dedicate a great deal of time and resources to mitigating risk around third-party data security, so we pursued HITRUST CSF Certification to help make that process easier for them."
