A Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) allows an employer to provide tax-free benefits to employees to be used on medical expenses. Both an incorporated business with or without employees is able to sign up. Today, the term Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) is often referred to a Health Spending Account (HSA) or vice versa. The two terms are interchangeable.
A Private Health Services Plan (also known as a PHSP) is an alternative to traditional health insurance. Used by thousands of small business owners across Canada, a PHSP is a cost-effective way to provide health and dental benefits to employees. In simple terms, health and dental benefits offered through this plan are fully tax deductible to the business and received 100% tax free by the employees. There are no premiums, hidden fees, deductibles, copay, or complex policies.
For entrepreneurs and self employed professionals, this is an effective tool to cut your taxes and reduce your medical costs. The ability to write off health and dental expenses can create savings of more than 30% on medical and dental related expenses

Cost Plus is an arrangement to provide a facility for payment of legitimate expenses otherwise not covered by the insured benefit program. Cost Plus claims are also those expenses which exceed present policy limits or deductibles paid. Eligible claims are those that qualify as a medical or dental claim under the income tax act.

A Health Spending Account (also known as an HSA or HCSA) is an alternative to traditional health insurance. A Health Spending Account is a special account that is established to exclusively pay for health care services for you and your family members. It enables a small business to deduct 100% of the family health and dental expenses, and all benefits within the HSA are 100% tax free to employees.
