Are you a non-profit organization?
We are actually a governmental entity. In the early 1990's, the State authorized counties to create their own HMOs. in 1994, the City created the San Francisco Health Authority, which now operates San Francisco Health Plan. Although we work closely with the San Francisco Department of Public Health, we are separate from the City. We have no access to the City's treasury and are not part of the City's organizational structure. Instead, we report to our own Governing Board.
