Private Health Services Plans

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.

Benefits of a PHSP?

As medical technologies and treatments expand, and healthcare costs increase, traditional group insurance is struggling to keep up; both in terms of what to cover, and how to contain costs. There is a constant tension between plan inclusion and cost containment. Year over year, costs in a traditional plan will continue to increase, presenting the business with a trend they may not appreciate. With a PHSP, nearly all medical expenses, drugs and treatments are covered, making it simple and straightforward for everyone involved and the cost is consistent from one year to the next. With a PHSP you set an annual coverage limit for each employee class, and the costs for the year will be capped accordingly. Here are some additional advantages of Implementing a PHSP
