A wellness account covers things that are not listed as medical expenses in the Income Tax Act. Your employer chooses the eligible expenses to be included in your plan. When you submit a claim, you’ll get a 100% reimbursement, with no deductible, up to the maximum allocated to your wellness account.
Depending on your plan, there may be some restrictions. Check your employee booklet for more details.
