For all other returns, Pacira reserves the right to determine, in its sole discretion, whether returned product is eligible for credit or exchange.

To seek an exchange or credit for reasons related to order processing or shipment error, an RGA must be requested within thirty (30) calendar days of the invoice date. Products also must be returned in original, saleable condition to be eligible for credit or exchange.

Credit valued at the invoiced purchase price will be issued for authorized returns upon confirmation of receipt of the product by Pacira.
