S.F. Mayor Tasks Group With Studying ACA Implementation
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee (D) has tasked the city's Universal Healthcare Council with reviewing implementation of the Affordable Care Act in San Francisco. The move comes amid debate over how Healthy San Francisco -- the city's near-universal health care program -- will align with the ACA. Lee said that the city remains committed to providing universal health coverage within city limits and that Healthy San Francisco will continue, "funded largely through our own general fund support in addition to the financial support of our many provider partners and will remain for those ineligible for federal benefits."
