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.
Methazolamide is used only in the adjunctive treatment of open-angle (noncongestive, chronic simple) or secondary glaucoma and for short-term preoperative therapy in angle-closure (obstructive, narrow-angle) glaucoma when delay of surgery is desired in order to lower intraocular pressure.
Dosage and Administration
Methazolamide is administered orally.
Dosage of methazolamide must be adjusted according to the patient's requirements and response. The usual adult dosage of methazolamide is 50-100 mg 2 or 3 times daily.
Methazolamide shares the pharmacologic actions and toxic potentials of the carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and the usual precautions of carbonic anhydrase inhibitor therapy should be observed. The manufacturers state that methazolamide is contraindicated in patients with severe or absolute glaucoma.
Methazolamide is absorbed more slowly from the GI tract and disappears more slowly from the plasma than does acetazolamide.
Methazolamide is distributed into plasma, erythrocytes, extracellular fluid, bile, the aqueous humor of the eye, and CSF. The drug crosses the placenta in unknown quantities. It is not known whether methazolamide is distributed into the milk of nursing women.
Methazolamide is partially metabolized in the liver. About 20-30% of a dose is excreted in urine as substances with carbonic anhydrase inhibitor activity. The fate of the remainder of the dose has not been determined.
