You qualify if you are a corporation or a limited company, and if you pay taxes and you have medical and/or dental bills. The size of the business is not important. You could be the sole owner and employee or you could have many employees. If you already have an employee benefits plan [group insurance], you are probably facing rising employee benefits costs combined with more restrictive group benefit contract wording. With a Private Health Services Plan/Health & Welfare Trust, corporations can take advantage of a new approach that could save up to 30% on group insurance costs while at the same time providing increased flexibility and control. It is recommended that BIZFLEX PLUS be included in your PHSP/HWT.
