  • Consider a health spending account a piggy bank for your drug, dental and extended health needs. Money deposited by your business can be used to cover all CRA approved eligible personal medical expenses. By using a 3rd party administrator such as YourHSA all contributions are 100% tax deductible.

    This can be set up for a 1 person business or multi-employee corporation as a cost effective alternative to an insured drug and dental plan.
  • Provide examples
  • The definition of dependants for a health spending account is more flexible than traditional drug, dental and extended health plans:
    Any person related by blood / marriage or law who is financially dependent on you. Common-law spouses must have resided with you for the past 12 consecutive months.

    This can be a real benefit to many families.

    It is becoming more common for children to stay home after graduation of post secondary school and an ever increasing trend for people to pay for the health costs of their elderly parents not covered by government programs.
  • Clients have the ability to check account status online as well as submit claims
    YourHSA does not require original receipts. Information on the receipt is required to be input. The client must keep a copy in case they are audited by CRA or YourHSA.
    One of the fastest reimbursement processes in the industry. Our goal is a 2 day reimbursement for common HSA expenses. Complex claims such as out of country procedures may take longer to process.
    Enrolment is quick and simple as everything can be done online. Once all required information is completed the client will immediately be sent a welcome package via email.
  • Any small business owner is challenged with how to pay for drug, dental and extended health costs. If they do not have access to a group plan through a spouse, most small business owners or self employed pay for these expenses out of pocket using after tax income dollars.

    This is where a health spending account is of great value. No longer do business owners have to pay for these expenses personally. All they need to do is set up a health spending account and any contributions the business makes are 100% tax deductible to the business, while all eligible medical expenses are reimbursed tax free.

  • It is important to offer some sort of drug, dental and extended health coverage and this is where we would recommend a health spending account for the employees as a cost effective alternative. Employees often perceive their drug benefits as the most important part of their benefit package as well.
  • Insure high cost events with a low frequency of happening. In probability theory, the law of large numbers (LLN) is a theorem that describes the result of performing the same experiment a large number of times. According to the law, the average of the results obtained from a large number of trials should be close to the expected value, and will tend to become closer as more trials are performed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_large_numbers
