Okay, I'm hoping someone can 'dumb this down' for me.
The 'need a prescription for OTC meds' rule for 2011.
How does this work?
Is it for everybody?
with or without insurance?
Or is it only effecting those with a flex spending account or other accounts? (which is what exactly?) and want to be reimbursed for for buying cough drops?
I'm in a pharmacy class, having a debate. But I'm not sure how to respond. Everyone is just getting worked up over Obama, bad health care plan, and having to go the dr. to get a prescription for Midol. Everyone is so mad that they'll have to go to the dr. in order to get tylenol. and "what's next, a prescription for toilet paper?"
I just want to understand what exactly is going on.

It's for those folks with a HSA- loaded with pre-tax dollars- In order to use that money to pay for certain (defined) OTC meds, you must have an MD order.
