New Health Care Expenditure Rates Effective January 1, 2017 

The San Francisco City & County Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) has released the 2017 health care expenditure rates concerning the Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO). 


The HCSO is a San Francisco law that established several employer health care-related obligations enforced by the OLSE and created a Health Access Program administered by the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Under the HCSO, ​covered e​mployers must meet certain obligations, including (among other things) satisfying the Employer Spending Requirement (ESR) by ​calc​ulating and making required health care ​expendit​ures on behalf of all ​covered employees

2017 Health Care Expenditure Rates 

For hours payable on or after January 1, 2017, the health care expenditure rate for large businesses (100 or more employees total) will be $2.64 per hour, and the rate for medium-sized businesses (20-99 employees total) will be $1.76 per hour

Note: For hours payable on and after January 1, 2017, only irrevocable health care expenditures will be counted toward the ​HCSO employer spending requirement.
