An HSA is a uniquely designed trust account, established to pay for your family’s health care costs. All deposits are recognized by Revenue Canada (CCRA) as 100% tax deductible for the year in which they are contributed – even if the money is not spent that year.
If you are already spending the money, why not make it tax deductible?
You are covered for all traditional health care costs, like dental, prescription drugs and vision care. The HSA also extends to cover the rest of your costs: family orthodontic, cosmetic and restorative dental, laser eye surgery, cosmetic surgery and even long term care costs for elderly dependents.
What if, due to accident or illness, you need more coverage than your HSA contributions? You can purchase additional HSA Insurance.
