2017 Individual and Family
Chinese Community Health Plans
Chinese Community Health Plan (CCHP) serves San Francisco and northern San Mateo counties. CCHP grew out of the first and only Chinese hospital in the United States and now offers health services for Medi-Cal, Medicare Advantage Plan, individual and family plans along with small group health plans. (See: CCHP History) CCHP is not just for individuals of Chinese or Asian heritage, but is open all residents and employers living in their service territory.

2017 Rates for San Francisco and San Mateo Counties
Chinese Community Health Plan is one of three private regional health plans participating in Covered California and offering individual and family plans (IFP) off-exchange. The other regional HMOs are Sharp Health plan in San Diego and Western Health Advantage in the North Bay/Sacramento area. These regional health plans, all Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO), typically serve one to four counties and are not state wide.
2016 Multiple on and off exchange plans
In addition to the Bronze through Platinum metal tier plans offered through Covered California, CCHP also offers individual and family plans off the exchange. The off-exchange plans are Jade (Platinum), Copay 25 (Gold), and Amber (Silver). While CCHP is primarily an HMO, they do offer a PPO Silver level plan off-exchange called ActiveChoice with a $2,500 medical deductible and coverage for out-of-network health care services. Monthly premium rate sheets are available at the bottom of the post.
Jade simple drug formulary
Another interesting twist is that their Gold Copay 25 plan has lower primary care and specialist visit copayments than their Platinum Jade plan. In addition, the off-exchange Jade plan has its own two-tier drug formulary as opposed to the traditional four-tier formularies found on their other off-exchange and Covered California health plans. The two-tier drug formulary means that the prescription medication has either a generic or brand name drug copay after the pharmacy deductible. This is simpler than the multi-tier drug formularies that split drugs into generic, non-preferred generic, brand name and non-preferred brand name prescriptions.
Tiered facility coinsurance
CCHP has their pediatric dental plans administered by Delta Dental. The Jade, Amber and ActiveChoice PPO plan have a tiered facility cost sharing structure. The copayment and coinsurance is less expensive if you have an “in” or “out” patient procedure done at Chinese Community Hospital as opposed to one of the other participating hospitals in the CCHP network.
