What's a Health Spending Account?
The Honeybee Health Account is our unique approach to a popular employee benefit: the Health Spending Account (known as an “HSA” for short). These accounts are funded by the employer and can be used by employees for a wide variety of medical expenses. Eligible expenses are determined by the Canadian Revenue Agency and vary by province. See the list below for some of the most common examples!
Common Health Expenses
A Health Account can be used to reimburse the cost of drugs and medications prescribed by a licensed medical practitioner and dispensed by a pharmacist.
The services covered vary by province/territory but may include psychologists, chiropractors, massage therapists, podiatrists (foot specialists), and others.
A Health Account can be used to pay for vision needs in many forms, including optometrist visits, prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, and even laser eye surgery.
A wide variety of dental expenses can be covered by a Health Account, ranging from preventative services (including dental check-ups & cleanings) to orthodontic treatment and restorative services such as fillings.
Are Health Accounts Right for My Business?
If your company is just getting started with benefits, a Health Account is a great way to begin offering employee health benefits coverage because the costs are controlled and predictable.
A Health Account can also be a great complement to an existing benefits plan with insurance coverage, offering additional choice to employees in how they can use their benefits. These flexible spending accounts are particularly well-suited to organizations that have young or multi-generational workforces where people often have very different kinds of health expenditures.
