Choose UCSF and Hill

You can choose UCSF and Hill Physicians if you get your health care in San Francisco and you're a member of an HMO such as Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross (California Care), Blue Shield, CIGNA, Health Net and United/PacifiCare, including Medicare HMO plans. UCSF's affiliation with Hill Physicians also may affect you if you're a member of a point of service (POS) plan.

Members of preferred provider organization (PPO) plans that are contracted with UCSF can get care from a UCSF doctor without selecting Hill Physicians as their medical group.

UCSF is not an "in network" provider for Brown & Toland Medical Group patients. Referrals to most UCSF specialists from Brown & Toland primary care doctors require prior authorization. Exceptions are pediatric specialty and obstetrical care. Those patients may see a UCSF specialist without prior authorization.

Talk to your HMO or POS plan, your doctor and your employer's benefits representative to find out more.

We know you have many choices when it comes to your health care and we hope you'll choose Hill Physicians and UCSF.
