PRIVATE HEALTH SERVICES PLAN

PROVIDE FOR YOURSELF, FAMILY & EMPLOYEES

Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) is a Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) approved health savings plan that provides a tax-free way to finance healthcare costs of yourself, family or employees, allowing a business owner to expense medical costs through the company.

The PHSP is the perfect plan for self-funding employer & employee healthcare expenses. This is a ‘pay-as-you-claim’ plan in which an employer-funded flexible benefits plan is used like a bank account to pay for 100% of all eligible medical expenses, tax-free.

The PHSP participant starts each plan year with a designated number of credits / dollars in an Employee Health Spending Account (EHSA) as determined by the plan sponsor (owner / employer). Premiums are not required – this is a ‘pay-as-you-claim’ plan, so no claims mean no costs.

PHSP ELIGIBLE EXPENSES

VISION

A PHSP plan can help provide proper and sometimes essential vision care products and services such as eyeglasses, contacts, and other eyewear if prescribed, are all eligible medical expenses under the PHSP.

PRESCRIPTIONS

A PHSP plan covers prescription medicines, drugs, and medical expenses if purchased by the employee, or dependents, as prescribed by a medical practitioner and provided by a pharmacist.

DENTAL

PHSP coverage covers the amount paid to a dentist, hygienist, orthodontist or dental surgeons for dental services provided to the patient. Dental and oral health care are eligible medical expenses.

COSMETIC

The amount paid to a medical practitioner for surgery, whether cosmetic or elective generally qualifies as a PHSP medical expense. To qualify the surgery is done for a valid medical reason.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Chiropractors, Denturists, Osteopath, Psychiatrists, Physicians, Massage Therapists, Psychologists, Practitioners, Midwife, Neurologists, Occupational Therapists and others qualify under PHSP expenses.

TRANSPORTATION

Medical transportation such as an ambulance is a PHSP expense. Other eligible transportation expenses include transport service transporting a patient to a clinic, hospital or doctor’s office.

TAX SAVINGS

As a business owner, you realize tax savings when you purchase health and dental expenses with before-tax dollars – an immediate saving equal to your personal tax bracket.  Health expenses become a tax-deductible business expense, and reimbursements are paid to you personally, tax free.

NO PREMIUMS

Not only are there no premiums to pay, but also our PHSP offers the lowest administrator fees in the industry.  Our pay-per-claim plan charges a 8% administrator fee on claims, as claims are submitted.

HOW HEALTH SPENDING ACCOUNTS WORK

Throughout the year, the participants use the tax-free credits / dollars to pay for medical, dental and vision care expenses and Sub Plan premiums that are not covered by other plans.

Eligible expenses include, but are not limited to:

  • Prescription Drugs
  • Laser Eye Surgery
  • Crowns and Cosmetic Dental Work
  • Orthodontics for Adults and Children

If a participant has additional coverage (spouse’s plan), both plans can be used to recover health and dental care expenses to a 100% maximum. Claim first from the conventional plan.

Your company submits the original receipts with a cheque to the PHSP for the amount of the receipts plus the cost of processing (8%) and applicable taxes. The business deducts the entire cost. The PHSP then issues a tax-free reimbursement to the claimant. No money is required by the PHSP until a claim is submitted.

PHSP Information:

Tax Savings

As a business owner, you realize tax savings when you purchase health and dental expenses with before-tax dollars – an immediate saving equal to your personal tax bracket.  Health expenses become a tax-deductible business expense, and reimbursements are paid to you personally, tax free.

Low Administration Costs

Cost Control

Employers decide how many credits / dollars will be applied to employees’ Health Spending Accounts each year.  Therefore, the employer knows the maximum amount to be spend on the employee benefit plan in a given year.

100% Reimbursement

Employees are reimbursed for 100% of their health, dental and vision expenses (up to the plan maximum), with tax-free dollars.

Flexibility

PHSP Employee Health Spending Accounts can be used for medically necessary health, dental or vision expenses.  Employees use Health Spending Account credits on the services they need, when they need them.
