    My experience is the decline messages from Stripe/Simple Practice are many times not accurate.  I get the above message a lot, many times after the same card has been processing for months without a problem.  I also get the card expired decline, when the card is clearly not expired.  I now just notify the client their card is declining and ask them for alternative payment.

    Our understanding is that this is the "decline" message for cards linked to HSA/FSA accounts. Most often the client has not funded the HSA account (or funds haven't been applied yet). Hope this helps.
