Claims Deadline

Any unpaid Extended Health and/or Dental Care claims incurred between Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2017 that you would like reimbursed from your Health Spending Account (HSA) must be received by Sun Life no later than 90 days after Dec. 31, 2017 (Mar. 31, 2018).  After Mar. 31, 2018, any 2017 claims for Extended Health and/or Dental will no longer be eligible for submission.

Your HSA can provide reimbursement for benefit expenses not covered by extended health and dental care plans. You must apply for any unpaid expenses towards your HSA credits by submitting an Extended Health claim form or online via the Sun Life Plan Member website or through the Sun Life Mobile App.

    I never used HSA.
    What are the eligible items to be claimed for HSA?

      Hi Loretta,

      Please visit the Health Spending Account page (http://www.hr.ubc.ca/wellbeing-benefits/benefits/details/health-spending-account/) – there is a section called “Eligible Expenses” where you can learn what items can be claimed.
