Early childhood education immunizations

At Sharp Health Plan, we believe in providing the best care possible for our community. We understand that the decision to immunize your child may be difficult due to confounding news reports. This is why we at Sharp Health Plan, in partnership with our community pediatricians, would like to provide you with information to help you feel comfortable with this important decision.
Parents make tough choices every day—immunizing against deadly or debilitating disease should not be one of them.

Out-of-town coverage for children

If your dependent child is traveling for less than 90 consecutive days in the coming year, or is enrolling in college as full-time student, he or she may continue on your health insurance policy. In situations where your child is expected to be out of the service area, we want to be sure you know the options for accessing health care services.

Children must maintain their primary residence or work within Sharp Health Plan’s service area unless they are full-time students or in cases where coverage is provided under a medical support order. A child’s residence will no longer be considered a primary residence if: (a) the child moves out of the service area without intent to return or, (b) the child is absent from the residence for more than 90 consecutive days in any 12-month period and is not a full-time student.

Understanding IRS 1095 tax forms

Tax season is here and Sharp Health Plan wants to help in making this challenging time easier for you.

In your mailbox, you may have received or will soon receive an IRS 1095 tax form. This form verifies you had the minimum essential health coverage during 2016. Under the Affordable Care Act, you are required to verify your health care coverage when you file your federal tax return; this form fulfills that requirement. Although you are not required to submit your 1095 form to the IRS when you file your taxes, we encourage you to keep it as part of your tax records.  

We recommend you consult your tax adviser and refer to the IRS website for more information.

Most-used resources at your fingertips

From information on healthcare reform and renewal to language assistance and group administration manuals, here are the resources you’ll need to help your employees make the most of their benefit plan.


Why choose Sharp Health Plan?

We’re the only commercial not-for-profit health insurance provider in San Diego. We’re proud to connect over 3,000 local companies and their employees to award-winning care. Meet the heart behind the health care.


Health Care Reform and your health

By law, your coverage can’t be dropped or denied if you have a pre-existing medical condition or if you get sick. Because of the Health Care Reform, you can get health insurance regardless of the current state of your health, and you can’t be charged more because of your existing health or medical condition. When you get care for your pre-existing condition or a new health condition, you’ll still need to pay any deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance your plan requires.
