How to Enroll
If you currently are not a Healthy San Francisco participant, follow these steps to enroll in the program. Your health care coverage under Healthy San Francisco does not immediately begin after your Employer’s first payment on your behalf to SF City Option. We will first need to confirm that you qualify for Healthy San Francisco.
Your Employer Makes a Payment to SF City Option:
The SF City Option Program is one option for Employers to satisfy the Employer Spending Requirement of the San Francisco Heath Care Security Ordinance.
Receive SF City Option Welcome Letter:
Within 1-3 weeks of your Employer’s first payment on your behalf, you’ll receive a welcome letter from SF City Option with instructions on how to complete the SF City Option Program Finder Form
Complete a Program Finder Form or Call SF City Option Customer Service:
To find out if you qualify for Healthy San Francisco, complete the SF City Option Program Finder Form or call SF City Option Customer Service at (415) 615-5720. SF City Option will use the information you provide on the form or to Customer Service to confirm whether you might be eligible for Healthy San Francisco. If you are eligible for HSF, you’ll need to schedule an enrollment appointment at the SFHP Service Center, located at 7 Spring Street in San Francisco.
When you complete the form and SF City Option confirms you may be eligible for the program, you’ll receive instructions on how to enroll in Healthy San Francisco. Call (415) 615-5720 to schedule an enrollment appointment at the SFHP Service Center, located at 7 Spring Street in San Francisco.
Complete an Application at Your Appointment:
Bring personal identification, proof of San Francisco residency, and proof of income and assets to your enrollment appointment. One of our Enrollment staff will confirm your eligibility for Healthy San Francisco and help you submit an application. If you qualify for and enroll in Healthy San Francisco, you will choose your Medical Home where you will receive medical care. We will also let you know your participant fee. If you had an Employer who made a payment to SF City Option on your behalf within 6 months of your enrollment, you may receive a discount on the participant fee.
If you qualify for and enroll in Healthy San Francisco, coverage begins on your enrollment date. Visit the Healthy San Francisco website at healthysanfrancisco.org to learn about the services covered and provider network.
