Private Health Services Plans



Purpose

The purpose of this medical and dental benefit plan is to assist business owners with the financial cost of their health expenses. Using a Private Health Services Plan allows you to use pre-tax company funds to pay for your expenses. Depending on your tax bracket, the savings can be significant when compared to using personal after-tax dollars. You decide which health care products and services to purchase and then are reimbursed with funds deposited to the plan by your company.

Process

Mail your original receipts, a completed claim form, and a corporate cheque in the amount of your claim plus the administration fee to Keyser Benefits Corp., the Plan Administrator. Keyser Benefits Corp. will then mail you a cheque, payable to you personally, in the amount of the claim. Claims can be submitted as incurred or compiled to be submitted at your convenience.
