Reduce your medical costs by using HSA


Canadians spend more on health care than they used to and with an aging population it will only get worse. According to the Canadian Institute for Health information, an average cost per year is $6,000 a person. Government is funding 71 % of health care spending while remaining portion comes from private sources. It was projected that in 2015, 14 percent of these expenses will be paid out-of-pocket.

If you are looking for ways to cut costs, Health Spending Account (HSA) could be a solution for you. In 2015, small business owners used this opportunity to save tax on 70 mln. dollars which were claimed through accounts held at Olympia Benefits.


HSA is an individual plan which allows to cover out-of-pocket qualified medical expenses on a tax-advantaged basis. It is 100% tax free to the owner and 100 % tax deductible from business income. Plan creates value for business owners who are incorporated by turning personal (after tax) expenses into business expenses.

Your HSA credits cover:

  • All prescription drugs, health, dental and vision expenses
  • Deductibles or co-insurance amounts
  • Your premium contribution

HSA Allocation

Each calendar year you will have to decide how much spending you wish to have covered. Default amount of credits included in the plan is 15,000. Any unused credits for the year are rolled over to the following year (one time only).
