Meet Your Health Spending Account
A Health Spending Account (HSA) is a non-taxable plan that helps employers turn healthcare costs into business expenses while empowering employees to individualise their benefits flexibly.
It works like this: employees (and their eligible dependents*) receive an allowance each year that is set by their employer. Using the Benepeak app, employees choose how they want to spend these funds and can tailor their benefits to their lifestyle.
• Spouse or common-law partner
• Parents, grandparents, and in-laws
• Children, grandchildren, and siblings under 18
• Relations with impaired physical or mental functions
Sole owner businesses and small businesses (with <5 or 5+ employees) can all benefit from HSA. Read on to see how HSA’s flexibility, cost-control, and ability to tailor the plan to individual needs benefits us all, regardless of the size of your company.
Sole Owner Businesses
Sole owner businesses do not qualify for traditional group insurance plans but with an HSA they can reduce their taxes by claiming personal health and dental expenses as business expenses.
Companies with >5 employees
Companies with <5 employees can’t get group insurance but with an HSA, employees can access flexible health and dental benefits while helping their employer keep business taxes and associated costs down
Companies with 5+ Employees
HSA’s compliment group insurance for multi-generational workforces. Employees of any age can cover their group insurance deductible and health expenses with a prepaid credit card linked to their HSA.
