IMPORTANT Debit Card Information:
Current VISA Debit Card holders of Altoona Regional Health System (now HealthCare First CU) will be receiving replacement MasterCard Debit Cards that will be mailed out on May 22, 2017. The new pin mailers will be sent out a few days later. These cards can then be activated at any ATM machine. The new MasterCard Debit Card will be active and ready to use for purchases and ATM withdrawals on June 12, 2017. This MasterCard Debit Card will replace all VISA Debit Cards which will be inactive as of June 15, 2017.
Effective June 7, 2017, all current HealthCare First CU MasterCard Debit/ATM cards will be “Real-Time.” This means that as soon as activity completes (ATM withdrawal, purchase, etc.) it will be shown on the available balance. There will no longer be “float time” where card activity may be delayed half a day or more from hitting your account.
For questions regarding this change, please contact us at 814-535-2606 or email email@example.com.
Visa® / Mastercard® Cards
For your convenience, HealthCare First Credit Union offers the best to our members — a Debit Card to access your share draft/checking account, an ATM Card to access cash via ATM only.
A credit card is entirely different from a debit card — you are accessing a line of credit. It’s basically borrowing funds or a loan. A limit is established by your credit union when you apply for your account. These amounts must be paid back by the due date when you receive your bill, either in full or a monthly amount.
- Visa Credit Card: Great 9.99%APR** credit card rate. (The same underwriting guidelines will be used as they would for the establishment of personal line of credit loan)
- Young Adult Visa Credit Card: Must be 18-26 years if age. Great 2.99%APR** credit card rate. (The same underwriting guidelines will be used as they would for the establishment of personal line of credit loan)

With the debit card, checking has never been so convenient. By using your debit card, you are accessing your checking account. Debit cards work like writing a check; you will need to deduct or decrease your account by the amount of the purchase. Your purchases are free of any unnecessary fees. This card provides the safety and simplicity of allowing members to access their checking accounts 24-hours per day at either an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) or at a merchant point of sale. A directory of free ATMs is available on the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association’s web site at http://www.cudollar.org.
