The 2022 San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance (SF HCSO) expenditure rates were recently released. SF HCSO expenditure rates increase annually and vary based on employer size.
For 2022, medium-sized covered employers must spend $2.20 per hour payable (up to a maximum of $378.40 per month, based on a maximum of 172 hours payable) and large covered employers must spend $3.30 per hour payable (up to a maximum of $567.60 per month, based on a maximum of 172 hours payable) on their covered employees’ health care.
The new 2022 rates, as compared to the 2021 rates, are outlined below:

As a reminder, SF HCSO requires covered employers to spend a minimum amount on covered employees’ healthcare. For more information on who qualifies as a covered employer, which employees are covered by the ordinance, and other employer obligations under the SF HCSO regulations, we recommend employers review the SF HCSO website and accompanying regulations.
