Continuity of Care

Continuity of Care

A new member or a member whose doctor is no longer in SFHP’s provider network may request to receive the completion of covered services being provided by a non-participating provider, if at the time of the member’s enrollment with SFHP, the member was receiving services from that provider for one of the following conditions.

These health conditions include:

  • Acute illness
  • Serious chronic illnesses
  • Pregnancies (including immediate postpartum care)
  • Terminal illness
  • Children from birth to 36 months of age
  • Members who have received approval from a now-terminated or non-participating provider for surgery or another procedure as part of a documented course of treatment.

Contact SFHP’s Customer Service at 1(415) 547-7800 or 1(800) 288-5555 to request continuity of care from a terminated provider, or a non-contracted provider.
