Are you turning a blind eye when it comes to protecting your vision?
In 2005, the Canadian Ophthalmological Society found that 50 per cent of Canadians have not had an eye exam in five years or more. This stat proves that Canadians are increasingly ignoring their eye health, resulting in serious health consequences.
Vision expenses are not typically covered by extended health and dental or employee group benefit plans. This makes it difficult for employees to get their recommended annual eye exams to cover the costs of eyeglasses and contact lenses.
With a Private Health Services Plan (PHSP), all vision expenses are covered for you and your family. Now your children can get their back-to-school glasses and parents can test their eyes for better workplace productivity.
A PHSP allows business owners to enroll themselves, their employees and family members. All expenses submitted to the trust are fully tax-deductible as a business expense. Medical, dental and non-mainstream services are also covered by the plan.
If you are a self-employed or incorporated business owner looking for an alternative to group insurance, get started on the plan today!
