HOW TO USE YOUR HEALTH CARE SPENDING ACCOUNT (HCSA)
Your HCSA is a spending account funded by your employer that you can use to pay for health and dental expenses that are not covered by your group benefit plan or your provincial health plan.
Based on your group plan design, your employer deposits a set amount into your HCSA—then you use the funds for whatever eligible expenses are important to you. It’s all about individual choice— so you can enjoy all the flexibility and convenience your HCSA has to offer.
Eligible HCSA expenses include all expenses that qualify for medical expense tax credits under the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) Income Tax Guidelines, such as:
Payments to medical practitioners, hospitals, orthodontics, etc.
Artificial limbs, aids and other medical equipment
Eyeglasses and contact lenses
