Health Spending Accounts 2.0 Now Available

Health Spending Accounts 2.0 Now Available

CALGARY, July 3, 2017 – PreAxia Health Care Payment Systems Inc. introduces its new Health Spending Account (HSA) platform for businesses of all sizes.

It should come as no surprise that Health Spending Accounts are growing in popularity.  They help pay for individual health care expenditures which are a growing concern for businesses and their employees.  Businesses of all sizes save money while providing employee and owner health care benefits.

In 2011, PreAxia introduced the first paperless Health Spending Account using Internet technology.  Allowing businesses to establish HSA accounts on their own, to submit claims and receive payment using existing Internet and banking technology was a breakthrough at the time.  Today, the company’s updated platform provides more HSA choices plus support for today’s mobile devices, tablets and browser technology.  Unchanged is the paperless platform that simplifies administration and reduces costs.

Small businesses unable to justify health insurance can financially benefit from establishing a Health Spending Account.  Larger businesses that currently offer health benefits find that a Health Spending Account helps to control escalating expenditures without compromising on coverage.

PreAxia’s paperless platform has been simplified.  Employers and employees appreciate electronic submission of claims, quick payment of claims through electronic means, and the elimination of paper record keeping.   The new platform reduces the amount of information required of employers and employees in the administration and utilization of their HSA.

PreAxia’s HSA Education Centre has been enhanced to make it easier for businesses and individuals to learn about the benefits of Health Spending Accounts.  Access to the HSA Education Centre is available at

PreAxia Introduces First Paperless HSA Service in Canada

Today’s launch follows three years of development to create the first fully integrated HSA solution for Canada’s brokerage and broker community.




PreAxia Introduces First Paperless HSA Service in Canada

CALGARY, November, 2011 – PreAxia Health Care Payment Systems Inc introduces their automated platform for managing Health Spending Accounts (HSAs) in Canada.  Today’s launch follows three years of development to create the first fully integrated HSA solution for Canada’s brokerage and broker community.  Through the use of Internet technology, PreAxia allows HSA brokers to more easily offer and manage HSA accounts.  PreAxia technology simplifies fund-management, claims adjudication, transaction processing and on-line health benefit administration, through a broker’s own web site.   This automation results in cost savings for both HSA brokers and the companies that purchase these services.

An HSA is a special bank account to set aside funds for personal health care.  Similar in ways to an RRSP, this account offers tax advantages to both employers and employees.  Unlike the more traditional insurance plans, HSAs provide employers and employees with greater control in both the amount of funds invested and how the funds are used.  These accounts are available through health insurance brokers and financial advisors.  More information on HSA accounts can be found at PreAxia’s broker web sites which are accessible through

With PreAxia, Brokerage Firms and Brokers can create their own health spending account program.  The system provides the tools to establish a privately branded health spending account product as well as design a web site and marketing materials to complement the brand.  The platform also provides tools to manage new customer relationships and an automated enrolment process.  “This is an extremely sophisticated technology that we believe will be embraced by every HSA agent in the industry.  We have eliminated all the broker, employer and employee paperwork from HSA management.  PreAxia provides the administrative expertise, technology and tools to help our broker community to succeed.  We allow brokers to spend less time on administration and focus on the personal relationship part of their business”, commented Perry Shoom, PreAxia’s Vice President of Marketing.

For Small to Medium-Sized Businesses, HSAs are an attractive way to provide health care options for employees while controlling costs.  Using the PreAxia platform, employers determine the amount of money they wish to deposit into an HSA.  Employees use these funds to pay for a broad range of health care services.  PreAxia’s platform provides the on-line tools to manage the plan, generate reports, communicate with employees, submit claims and be reimbursed for health related expenditures.

“A great deal of planning and thought went into this product” commented Tom Zapatinas, PreAxia’s President and CEO.  “Our goal to build a technical solution that would bring value to everyone in the HSA community, I am proud to say, has succeeded beyond our most optimistic expectations” added Mr. Zapatinas.

PreAxia offers a Free Webinar for professionals interested in learning about the company’s automated & paperless HSA Management Solution.  Interested individuals should send an e-mail to with “Request Webinar Details” in the subject line.
