Under the 2006 San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance, San Francisco employers with 20 or more employees must provide health care for their employees. They can do this by purchasing employee health insurance, contributing to a city-run system or paying into a health reimbursement account.

The Health Care surcharge on San Francisco restaurant bills goes into health care reimbursement account for employees.
