The Sharp Health Plan Campaign

Sharp Health Plan Helps You Make Better Health Care Choices

The mission of Sharp Health Plan, the largest locally based commercial health plan in San Diego and a subsidiary of Sharp HealthCare, is to provide the best coverage, best care and best service at the best value.

At Sharp Health Plan, we believe informed patients make smarter choices that make their life better. That’s why we’re collaborating with Consumer Reports to bring you the Consumer Health Choices website, a resource to help you partner with your health care provider to make safer, smarter choices and to reduce your costs for lab tests, procedures and medications.
