EMV Payment Adoption: Are You Ready?

In an effort to prevent credit card fraud, U.S. merchants (including dental offices) that accept credit card payments using POS payment terminals are expected by banks and credit card companies (Visa, MasterCard, and American Express) to have upgraded to terminals that accept EMV chip cards by October 1, 2015.

While this deadline is not enforceable by any regulatory agencies, it should be noted that there is a potential risk for not complying. In the past, credit card issuers assumed liability for fraudulent charges, but beginning October 1, any merchant NOT using an EMV-compatible terminal who experiences a security breach involving a chip card will be liable for any fraudulent charge. However, if the merchant has upgraded its terminals and can accept EMV chip cards, the credit card issuer will be liable. 

The Massachusetts Dental Society strongly urges all members to upgrade to EMV payment terminals to avoid any liability for fraud charges.
