(tax-free health spending account)
An HSA (Health Spending Account or Private Health Services Plan) is a Canada Revenue Agency approved method to provide medical, dental and vision benefits in a tax efficient manner. A corporation can write off 100% of the costs related to its HSA. All expenses reimbursed are tax-free to the employees. If an employer does not have a traditional benefits plan, an HSA can be used to provide a complete range of coverage including medical, dental, and vision benefits to employees who otherwise could not get employer sponsored benefits. If an employer has a traditional insured group benefits plan, an HSA can be used to “carve out” infrequently used coverage such as orthodontics or vision care and make these types of benefits available in a Health Spending Account.
