Hand Scan Program

Scan your hand rather than your MaineCard to access your meal plan!

How Does it Work?

The scanner uses safe infrared technology to scan your palm.

A “vein map” of your palm is created via black lines that are converted through an encrypted algorithm and connected to your MaineCard ID number. The information is stored in a database which resides on a private network that also connects to our registers.

Please visit the MaineCard Service Center to register.

Remember, you should still carry your MaineCard with you at all times, but can scan your hand wherever the option is available!
