MEA is proud to announce that Sharp Health Plan will continue as our sponsored health plan (available to all City of San Diego employees, excluding Local 145).

Sharp Health Plan is the only commercial not-for-profit health plan in town. Its sole focus is to serve fellow San Diegans, and to deliver the most positive health care experience. In fact, Sharp’s special commitment to members is award-winning.

For the third year in a row, Sharp Health Plan is the highest member-rated health plan in California for rating of Health Care, Personal Doctor and Specialist among reporting California Health Plans.

To serve City employees, Sharp Health Plan has created the Sharp Hotline and website. You can speak with a Sharp representative by calling (888) 840-4747, Monday through Friday 8am and 6pm, or by visiting us online at
