The Department of Human Services (DHS) will issue new ACCESS Cards beginning this summer. The Pennsylvania Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) ACCESS card is a card with a magnetic stripe giving recipients access to cash assistance, SNAP benefits, Medical Assistance benefits or any combination of them. Recipients get Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits electronically through point-of-sale (POS) terminals in authorized food stores. Recipients and providers can verify their eligibility for Medical Assistance through the online Eligibility Verification System (EVS). DHS will exhaust and phase out the remaining supply of yellow cards and issue new cards or replacements as needed. A Medical Assistance Bulletin will be coming out in the near future regarding this change.
