What Are FSA and HSA Accounts?

FSA's and HSA's are federal programs that make it easy for you to enjoy significant tax benefits for qualified out-of-pocket medical expenses. Each program works a little differently but with each you avoid federal, state and local income taxes on any funds that you use for qualified medical expenses.

FSA tax benefits are administered by your job. Funds in an amount that you decide —within the program limits—are withdrawn from your paycheck without any payroll tax deductions.

Tax benefits with an HSA may be administered that way but there are also other options.

How Do I Use My FSA/HSA Funds?

You can use a pre-loaded debit card or get reimbursed from your FSA or HSA account after you make your purchase or a combination of both methods.

Important Safety Information


Tirzepatide

Tirzepatide is used for weight loss and type 2 diabetes in adults.

Tirzepatide is a GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist and works for weight loss by decreasing your appetite and slowing the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine, which may make you feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time.

Tirzepatide also decreases blood sugar levels by increasing insulin production and lowering the amount of sugar the liver makes.

Tirzepatide is a GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist, so it works (mechanism of action) by activating both GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) hormone receptors. GLP-1 helps control appetite and calorie intake, and GIP is thought to contribute to regulating food intake as well.

Tirzepatide may cause thyroid C-cell tumors. It is important to tell your doctor if you have a personal or your family has a history of thyroid cancer or a condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) syndrome.

This is a syndrome that causes tumors to develop on endocrine glands.

If you experience any of these symptoms: lump or swelling in your neck, difficulty in swallowing, hoarseness, or shortness of breath, then you should call your doctor immediately.

Keep all appointments with your doctor, health professionals, and the laboratory. Your doctor may order certain tests to check your body's response to this medicine.
