Flexible Spending Accounts will reimburse you for incurred expenses during your FSA plan year (period of coverage).
“Incurred” refers to expenses that happen after a service or product is provided – not when you are billed or pay for the service.You cannot be reimbursed in advance for any services.
Because FSA funds are available to you on the first day of your plan year, you must be able to receive full reimbursement for your contribution.
So, if you opted in for $1,200 a year for your FSA, you could use that amount on the first day (if you wanted to).
You can submit for FSA reimbursement in two ways:
1. Your FSA Administrator might provide you with an FSA Debit Card to use toward FSA eligible expenses.
You’ll be able to use the card at approved stores or pharmacies (we accept FSA Debit Cards and all major credit cards at FSAstore.com!)
By using the FSA debit card, your expenses are auto-adjudicated (electronically approved or disapproved) from the card and you may not need to submit additional receipts to your FSA Administrator.
Some FSA Administrators could still require a receipt to substantiate a claim. Check with your FSA Administrator about reimbursement procedures for your plan.The FSA Debit Card would not be charged if something is not considered FSA eligible under your plan.
2. You’ll have to typically submit a reimbursement claims form with:
- your personal details,
- product/service details(provider information)
- amount owed
- date of service provided.
FSAstore.com can provide you with an itemized receipt after you make your order to submit to your FSA Administrator for FSA reimbursement.
hydrocortison-acetic acid soln generic acetasol hc
Hydrocortisone or its acetate ester is applied topically to the eye or ear. For ophthalmic or otic use, hydrocortisone and hydrocortisone acetate currently are commercially available only in fixed-combination preparations.
Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the tip of the ointment tube or dropper of the solution or suspension when the drug is used ophthalmically.
For use in the eye in fixed combination with neomycin sulfate and polymyxin B sulfate, the usual dosage of ophthalmic suspensions containing hydrocortisone is 1 or 2 drops applied to the affected eye every 3 or 4 hours, or more frequently if necessary depending on the severity of the condition. When the ophthalmic ointment containing hydrocortisone in fixed combination with bacitracin zinc, neomycin sulfate, and polymyxin B sulfate is used, a small amount of the ointment is instilled into the conjunctival sac every 3 or 4 hours depending on the severity of the condition. The usual dosage of ophthalmic suspensions containing hydrocortisone acetate in fixed combination with oxytetracycline hydrochloride is 1 or 2 drops applied to the affected eye 3 times daily.
Ophthalmic ointments also may be used at night in conjunction with daytime use of a solution or suspension to reduce the frequent applications required with the liquid dosage form. The lowest effective concentration should be used and, if improvement does not occur within several days, the drug should be discontinued and other therapy begun. The duration of treatment depends on the type and severity of the disease and may range from a few days to several weeks; long-term therapy should be avoided. When the drug is discontinued, dosage should be gradually tapered to avoid exacerbation of the disease.
For application to the ear, the ear canal should be clean and dry, and the pH of the otic preparation must be neutral or acidic. Otic preparations should be used sparingly to prevent an accumulation of excess debris in the ear canal.
For use in the ear in fixed combination with colistin, neomycin, and/or polymyxin B), 4 or 5 drops of otic solutions or suspensions containing hydrocortisone or hydrocortisone acetate may be instilled into the ear canal 3 or 4 times daily in adults; because of the smaller capacity of the ear canal, 3 drops 3 or 4 times daily is suggested for infants and children. Alternatively, a gauze wick saturated with the solution or suspension may be packed into the ear canal, kept moist with solution or suspension (e.g., every 4 hours), and allowed to remain in the canal for 12-24 hours; the wick should be replaced at least every 24 hours. Alternatively, 3 drops of otic suspensions containing hydrocortisone in fixed combination with ciprofloxacin may be instilled into the ear canal twice daily in adults and children.
Duration of treatment may range from a few days to several weeks.
