Health & Dental Benefits
Health & Vision Coverage and Eligibility
San Francisco County IHSS Providers are eligible to enroll health and vision benefits through San Francisco Heath Plan Healthy Worker program. The coverage services include doctor visits, hospitalization, pharmacy, vision care and more. To qualify, state computer records must show you have worked and received payment for a San Francisco IHSS Recipient for 25 or more hours for the most current two consecutive months. This is an employee-based plan and does not cover dependents. For detailed information, please visit this website: www.sfhp.org/programs/healthy-workers/
Your health and dental insurance will terminate once state computer records show less than 25 worked/paid hours for 3 consecutive months in San Francisco County. The Public Authority will send you a warning letter 45 days before your insurance termination date. If your insurance is terminated, you must complete a new application form and meet the corresponding eligibility criteria before your insurance can start again. It is important to submit your timesheets on time and keep 25 or more paid/worked hours to prevent loss of coverage.
