How does a Health Spending Account (HSA) work?

1. It turns your after-tax personal expenses into a before-tax business expense through your small business.

2. It is both a tax write-off tool and an alternative to traditional health insurance.

3. It eliminates the tax you pay on top of your medical costs, which often surpasses the value offered by a traditional health plan.

How does a claim work?

Here’s how a claim would work for a $3,000 medical expense.


Step 1 - Pay for the $3,000 medical expense on your personal credit card.

Step 2 – Log in to your HSA account with Olympia and submit the details of your receipt online. You hold on to the original.

Step 3 - Send an online payment to Olympia from your business bank account for $3,000.

Step 4 - Olympia reimburses you directly for your original personal
expense. A direct deposit of $3,000 will be made to your personal
bank account.

The $3,000 reimbursement is TAX FREE.
The $3,000 payment from your corporation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

The claims process turns your after-tax medical costs (money you pay out of your pocket) into before-tax costs (gross income). Basically, it writes off your tax. This process (including reimbursement) all occurs within 2 days (48 hours). 

Effectively, Step 1 and Step 4 cancel out, leaving you with a business deductible in Step 3.

What is the difference between our 3 plans?

HSA PLUS / BASIC include the same Health Spending Account (HSA) core product.

The HSA PLUS package has a bonus of three additional insurance products.

These two HSA plans are suitable for family businesses only:

family business HSA incorporated business

A family business can be 1 owner with no employees or 1 owner + 1 employee who must be their spouse.

The HSA GROUP is for small businesses with 2 or more employees:
