FreedomPay funding transactions change effective June 1 at UNC Medical Center

Please be advised that effective June 1, 2016, FreedomPay funding transactions via credit card will be categorized by the Card Associations as a ‘Quasi-Cash’ instead of a ‘Miscellaneous Business’ transaction. As such, some banks and credit cards may recognize this type of transaction as a ‘Cash Advance’ and you may be subject to associated cash advance fees charged by your bank.

To avoid these potential fees, we encourage you to contact your credit card company in advance of this date to determine if you will be charged this fee. If applicable, please update your FreedomtPay account to fund using a different credit card that will not charge this fee, or to fund with your bank account (routing/account number). 

If you have further questions, please contact the FreedomPay Member Services team at or via phone at 888-495-0222 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
