JPMorgan announced today that insurers can now use prepaid debit cards to administer workers' compensation. Cardholders can be enrolled through an online managing tool that also allows plan administers to track shipping and payments, and deposit funds into accounts. Cardholders can use the card like any debit card, and can use it where Visa debit cards are accepted.
