Oscar is coming to San Francisco

Oscar is coming in 2017. No, not that Oscar.

A new health insurance carrier will offer plans both on- and off-exchange, in San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties. A little surprising it took this long, considering they are Google-funded, and we’ve heard them described as “great software – with health insurance attached.”

It appears their Bay Area rates and network will be middle-of-the-pack (current word is no Sutter Health/PAMF, though that could change). Will their customer service and user experience be enough to consider Oscar as a viable choice? Stay tuned.

San Francisco HCSO 2015 reporting deadline: Extended to May 2nd

The City of San Francisco’s Office of Small Business just sent a reminder: you must file your Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO) report for 2015, by April 30, 2016 or face a $500/quarter late filing fee.

Note: Private employers who employed fewer than 20 employees for all of 2015 (or non-profit employers that employed fewer than 50), do not need to file. Stop here.
