private health services plan PHSP costs will only be deductible if the plan is purchased from a third party in the business of selling insurance or if the plan is operated by a trustee that is in the business of operating such plans.

medical expense tax credit Where a deduction for PHSP cost is claimed, the expense amount will not also qualify for a medical expense tax credit.

provincial health care premiums Provincial health care premiums are not tax deductible through the use of a PHSP.

In 1998, our Federal Minster of Finance said,"The number of self-employed Canadians is growing daily. Many operate through unincorporated businesses. However, unlike those businesses that are incorporated, they cannot deduct premiums they pay for their supplemental health and dental plans. This is unfair. Starting this year, self-employed Canadians will be able to deduct these premiums from their business income."
Honourable Paul Martin, P.C., M.P., Minister of Finance
February 24, 1998 Federal Budget Speech
