San Francisco Health Service Board (HSB) Commissioners are required to be knowledgeable of matters concerning health and employee benefits policy and oversight. The HSB Education Policy outlines educational practices and reporting expectations for Commissioners throughout the course of each term year. The SFHSS leadership team seeks to provide diverse educational opportunities that support the Commissioners in acquiring the knowledge they need to effectively carry out their duties and align with the Strategic Plan for 2020-2022. Please see the items below for the full list of education materials.

2020 Risk Score Report Video Presentation
The SFHSS 2020 DxCG Risk Scores are generated using the commercial Cotiviti DxCG (diagnostic cost grouper) models from the diagnoses on the claims in the SFHSS All-Payer Claims Database (APCD). The report covers data from the Active and Retired populations, the Early Retiree population, Medicare Retirees, Medical Plan Performance, and costs in correlation to various conditions that our membership experiences.
Marina Coleridge, SFHSS Enterprise Systems Data and Analytics Manager, has recorded the presentation for our members to view in advance of the Health Service Board meeting on May 14, 2020.
April 2020 Non-Medicare Healthcare Plan Rating Methodologies Parts 1-4
This discussion provides information to the Health Service Board (HSB) of the San Francisco Health Service System (SFHSS), as well as other interested parties, regarding how health plan rates are set for SFHSS health plans for the active employee and early retiree populations (e.g., non-Medicare populations). This discussion has emerged to address periodic questions raised by HSB members, as well as in public comments during HSB meetings, about the relationship of health plan rates across:
▪ Active employees versus early retirees within a plan;
▪ By dependent coverage tier (single/two-party/family) within a plan; and
▪ Across health plans offered by SFHSS.
