2013 Universal Healthcare Council
On July 25, 2013, Mayor Lee asked Director of Health, Barbara Garcia, to reconstitute the Universal Healthcare Council (UHC) to engage stakeholders in a data-driven process to examine San Francisco’s implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its integration with the Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO). The UHC met five times from September to December 2013, and membership included representatives from San Francisco’s labor, business, health care, and government sectors.
UHC meeting materials and the group's Final Report, containing suggestions offered by members of the UHC to inform the City's future decision making, can be found below.
