The Goal is 30-40% Savings on Health Expenses, Without Paying Insurance Premiums:
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
Federal Tax Legislation makes this plan possible to the Canadian small business owner, and self employed professional, and significant savings of up to $600 per $1000 in health expense can be realized by claiming you and your family’s health expenses through this plan. But the CATCH is in actually making the claims.
In our many years of experience of providing the Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) or Health Spending Account (HSA) the 2 “BARRIERS” to success are:
- EASE OF USE : For most business owners, you have your hands full, running your business, and adding one more task to your life (submitting claims) can be difficult to fit in. (a.) You have to collect all your health receipts (b.) You schedule time to prepare the claim (c.) You have to find your claim form (d) Fill out the claim form (e.) Mail the claim along with original receipts, and a cheque for funding. (d.) Wait for the reimbursement cheque in the mail.
- TURN-AROUND TIME : Business cash flow is an important consideration. Submitting a claim means funding it (sending a cheque) then waiting 2-3 weeks for the reimbursed funds to return in the mail. Waiting 2 – 3 weeks or longer for the funds to be reimbursed may not be an option. And if any part of the claim is rejected, there can be an additional 2-3 week wait time to correct the error. This uncertainty prevents many from claiming.
** If you need assistance or have questions about a claim, many administrators keep you waiting 24-48 hours or more for a reply.
Up to 30% or more of all business owners who register for the plan, never make a claim.
