What is a Private Health Services Plan?
A Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) is a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Approved alternative to Group Health Insurance that allows a business to cover the healthcare costs of its Employees (including shareholders) in a tax efficient manner.
Many businesses don’t realize there are options beyond that traditional, Insured Group Insurance Plan.
With a PHSP, the employee has a vast, expansive list of eligible covered costs, for which they receive tax free reimbursement from the plan. When these costs are funded by the Employer, or Sponsor, the Plan Sponsor receives full tax deduction for the full cost.
