Plan Details

added flexibility with health care spending accounts

  • Choice on every level
    • For the plan sponsor, when setting up the plan – you decide how much to spend
    • For the employees, when submitting claims – they decide where to spend their benefit dollars
  • Eligible expenses according to Income Tax Act guidelines – very broad definitions – wider range of eligible items than
    any conventional benefits plan
  • Employees need open and flexible options – Vero enables employees to choose which benefits they require so they are not limited to choices dictated by conventional plans
  • Coordination of benefits between spousal plans and the Vero plan – employees can claim items not covered under spousal plans, deductibles, and amounts that exceed other plan maximums
