NYC Mayor: City Will Guarantee Healthcare for All New Yorkers

NYC to provide a $100M 'public option' for healthcare to city's 600,000 uninsured de Blasio says

In a surprise announcement, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday the city will launch a program that offers health services to people who've been shut out of insurance options or affordable care, including illegal immigrants.

The mayor added that participants will also be told how to get care from a specialist, such as an obstetrician/gynaecologist or mental health provider.

Walking and driving in New York City may be getting safer, according to new statistics that found that traffic deaths are at their lowest number in a century.

"No one should have to live in fear", de Blassio says.

Inslee's move comes a day after California Gov. Gavin Newsom proposed state-funded health care coverage for 138,000 young people living in the country illegally and reinstating a mandate for everyone to buy insurance or pay a fine - part of former President Barack Obama's health care law that congressional Republicans eliminated a year ago.

The state's similarly liberal governor, Andrew Cuomo, previously spoke about health-care-for-all prior to being elected to a third term a year ago. "We have to make it in practice a right". Coverage will also apply to undocumented immigrants.

It will also guarantee health care access to those ineligible for insurance, including illegal immigrants who live in NY.

Guardiola said: "Losing to Liverpool we would have been nearly out and we played knowing we were in or we were out". Yes, we have to (make changes). "It is so good and I am looking forward to our common future", he said.

"We need to know exactly who is going to be eligible for the program".

New York City taxpayers are burdened by a city income tax on top of New York State and federal income taxes they must pay.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announces NYC Care at the Lincoln Hospital in New York, on January 8, 2019.

"We applaud Governor Newsom for building on the strong foundation of the Affordable Care Act in his first official action", Lee said in a statement. This is the city paying for direct comprehensive care (not just ERs) for people who can't afford it, or can't get comprehensive Medicaid - including 300,000 undocumented New Yorkers. According to de Blasio's office, there are 90,000 and 200,000 workers in the retail and hospitality/food service industries, respectively, who have to choose between spending time with their families and putting food on the table.

The prospects for a statewide universal health care proposal in NY improved last fall when Democrats took control of the entire Legislature by winning a Senate majority. The city already runs a MetroPlus Health Plan that covers some 516,000 low-income residents. This plan will give all of that directly to the people who don't have it in the city'.

'NYC already has a public option, ' he tweeted.

"Health care is a human right, and in this city we're going to make that a reality", de Blasio said this week. Finding them homes, health care, food etc. help them first.
