Get a tax receipt
Some medical expenses, such as plan premiums, may be eligible as a tax deduction.
Did you know?
Claims processed before 5 p.m. MT, will send payments to your bank account the next business day, provided there are no delays by your bank.
Here’s how to check what was paid by your plan and find receipts to help you prepare for tax season.
How to check the total amount of claims you’ve submitted
If you’re on an employer-sponsored group plan, have a personal health plan or are on certain government-sponsored plans (Group 1 or 66), you can check the total amount of claims you’ve submitted for the previous year. The unpaid balances for most health and dental expenses can be claimed as a medical deduction on your income taxes, providing you meet the overall threshold required. You can confirm exactly what is eligible by checking the medical deduction section of the Canada Revenue website.
Select ‘Claims’ from the menu, then click ‘Claim total report’.
Enter the dates from which you wish to view your claim totals report—you can view the current year, as well as the two previous years. Next, enter the individual you want to view the report for and click ‘Generate report’.
If you require a claim total report from an earlier date, contact us at 1-800-661-6695.
How to get a receipt for premiums paid
If you have a personal health plan or Non-Group (Group 1) plan, you can get a tax receipt for premiums paid. Premiums paid for health and dental benefits may be claimed as a deduction for income tax purposes if you meet the overall threshold for medical expenses to be claimed.
Select ‘Account Settings’ from the menu.
Under the section ‘Payments & receipts’, click ‘Receipt of payment’.
Select the range of dates for the report you want to generate and click ‘Generate receipt’ or ‘Search payments’.
Note: If your individual plan premiums are being paid by a third party, such as an employer, you will not be able to access this feature.
If you’re on an employer plan, the portion you paid for health and dental premiums may be eligible as a deduction for income tax purposes if you meet the overall threshold for medical expenses to be claimed. As your premiums are taken from your payroll deductions, you can use your last paystub of the year as proof of your deductions.
Curious about your claim?
Depending on the type of claim you submitted, it may be automatically approved or pending further review.
