New HCSO Rates Effective Jan. 1, 2022

Under the San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance, employers must spend a minimum amount on health care for their San Francisco employees. As of January 1, 2022, the rates are as follows:

 

  • $3.30 per hour for employers with 100 or more workers worldwide.

  • $2.20 per hour for employers with 20-99 workers worldwide.

Employer Annual Reporting Form Schedule

Employer Annual Reporting Forms will be required for calendar year 2021. The form will be due on April 30, 2022, and it will be posted on the HCSO web page and the FCO web page by April 1, 2022.

Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the City of San Francisco waived employer annual reporting requirements for calendar years 2019 and 2020 under the Health Care Security and Fair Chance Ordinances. See the legislation passed by the Board of Supervisors on April 20, 2021 codifying the waiver. 

Note that employers were required to comply with all other aspects of the Health Care Security and Fair Chance Ordinances.
