Members of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association (GGRA) who work 8 to 20 hours a week in San Francisco eateries now have a place to go for walk-in care without paying anything out of pocket. Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care reached an agreement with the GGRA to provide at least four visits per year to its centers (more for GGRA members who work more hours, according to a formula worked out under the city’s Health Care Security Ordinance), paid for by the GGRA. Employees and their dependent children will be able to visit any Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care locations in the San Francisco Bay Area on an as-needed basis at no cost to them, up to the visit limit imposed by the agreement. The benefit to Dignity is likely to extend beyond that, however, as workers get into the habit of dropping in whenever the need arise.
