San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO)


HCSO requires CCA to make health care expenditures on an covered employee's behalf, even if the employee already has health insurance and/or receives health care services from another employer.
CCA chooses to participate in the SF City Option program and makes payments on a covered employee's behalf each quarter. Once this deposit is made each quarter an email notification is sent to to the employee with instructions on how to access these funds.


With some exceptions, an employee is covered by the Health Care Security Ordinance if the Employee works for an Employer covered by the HCSO and:

  1. Is entitled to be paid the minimum wage
  2. Has been employed by the Employer for at least 90 calendar days; and
  3. Works at least 8 hours per week in San Francisco
