Our Regional Sales Directors are committed to creating a plan that meets your needs, at a price that fits your budget. They’ll also provide a competitive quote if you’re looking to replace your existing group plan. And just think, if we work that hard on the quote, imagine just how hard we’ll work to keep you happy and healthy. To put together your perfect plan, we’ll need:

  • A current schedule of benefits or a sample of a plan you have in mind
  • Employee demographics (including gender, single/family/waived status, date of birth, occupation, hours worked, class (if setting up more than one)
  • If you currently have a group benefits plan, we’ll need: length of time with your current carrier; and your claims and rate history.

Planning for the unexpected

We also provide quotes for group Life Insurance, Accidental Death & Dismemberment, Dependent Life, Short Term Disability, and Long Term Disability for three or more employees. For a quote, we’ll need the salary and hire date of each employee along with the information above.

Health Care Spending Account (HCSA)

An HCSA is a great way to introduce flexibility and choice to a group benefits plan. They allow you to expand the type of expenses your plan can cover while only charging you if the account gets used.

HCSAs provide non-taxable supplemental coverage to traditional health and dental plans. Employees can choose to use their HCSA to for things such as:

  • paying for deductibles and any amounts over and above a deductible such as co-pays or co-insurance;
  • covering additional expenses for a benefit if they've reached the benefit maximum; and
  • covering insurance premiums if they purchase their own health plan for extra coverage

The Canada Revenue Agency website has a full list of medical expenses that are non-taxable and would be covered under our HCSA. Some examples include prescription eyeglasses, prescription drugs and dental services.

How does it work?

As an employer, you choose the HCSA amount employees receive each year. The minimum amount you can offer is $50 per employee.  That amount can be increased by $50 increments to a maximum of $15,000 per employee. You can even have different amounts for different employee classes such as owners, managers (Class A), and all other staff (Class B).

Once the HSCA is set up, employees can submit claims for reimbursement just like they would for any other benefit. We’ll adjudicate the claim to make sure it’s eligible, reimburse the employee, and then invoice you directly for the cost of the claim plus a 10% administration fee. Taxes may apply and there’s a minimum annual administration fee of $100 per policy year.

Each year the HCSA amount will reset for your employees. And, if you want to adjust the amount you’re offering, you can change it when your plan renews.
