Where can I use the Wellcare Flex Card? 

Wellcare Medicare Advantage plan members can receive additional flexibility with the Wellcare Flex Card. The Flex Card is a pre-loaded Visa debit card that you can use to help pay for covered costs beyond what your plan’s dental, vision and/or hearing benefits cover.

You can use the Flex Card to pay for up to $2,000 in dental, vision or hearing care per year. Your Flex Card can be used at any dental, vision and/or hearing providers who accept Visa, and it can be used in-network or out-of-network.

Not all supplemental benefits are available in every market, and you can’t use the card for non-medically necessary procedures like cosmetic dental care.

You can speak with a licensed insurance agent to find out if there are Wellcare Medicare Advantage plan available where you live that offer the Wellcare Flex Card. You can also find out if any available plans offer dental, hearing or vision care.
