June 30 is the deadline for using your $500 Health Spending Account (HSA) entitlement for 2017-2018 academic year. Unused HSA balances can be carried forward for one year only, but will then be forfeited. (Effective July 1, 2018, the HSA entitlement for the academic year will be $750.) The HSA is an amount you can use for payment of medical expenses not covered by your basic health and dental plan, including health and dental premiums. Visit http://dfa.ns.ca/health-spending-account-guide for more info. Once you have obtained services covered by this year’s entitlement, you will have until September 30 to file your claim with Medavie Blue Cross.
