What is the RAMS Cafeteria Plan?

For employees hired 20 hours or more, RAMS will provide the equivalent cash cost of Kaiser HMO as “cafeteria benefit credits”, which employees can choose to use for Kaiser HMO coverage, or Anthem HMO or PPO, or Chinese Community Health Plan coverage.  The employee can also select Dental, Vision, Long-Term Disability, Flex Spending Account, or Aflac coverage. RAMS will cover 100% of the cost of Life/AD&D, & Short-Term Disability.

If the total monthly premium cost of the plans you choose exceeds the cost of Kaiser HMO, then the difference will be automatically deducted from your paycheck.  Otherwise, if you have any unused extra cafeteria benefit credits left over, then 25% of the leftover credits will be included in your paycheck.

What is the San Francisco City Option?

For employees hired less than 20 hours, RAMS will provide healthcare expenditure contributions for every hour you are paid, to your account set up with SF City Option.  For SF residents, this will help fund your health care services & costs.  For non-SF residents or individuals who already have health coverage, this will go into a Medical Reimbursement Account which you can use to help pay for medical/health-related costs.  See “Overview” link here for this year’s Expenditure Rate contributed to your account.
