City of San Francisco subsidies to its public health system could surge to an unsustainable $4.3 billion over the next five years without major structural reforms and an influx of patients with health coverage, according to an early March city report that so far has netted no public scrutiny. The department’s revenue will slump 16 percent over that period, as federal and state safety net dollars vanish, the city report warns.
