Mayor Invoice de Blasio proclaims healthcare plan for NYC uninsured

Notably, NYC Care does not mean universal health insurance. "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", Phillips wrote on Twitter. "We want people to be in business and thrive, but we also want to make sure that people are protected", Councilman Jumaane Williams told CBS2's Marcia Kramer.

Unlike the MetroPlus plan, NYC Care is a program that leverages the city's hospital system.

On Tuesday, DeBlasio unveiled NYC Care, a program will guarantee health care for the estimated 600,000 New Yorkers who do not now have health insurance, according to the mayor's office. Workers in hospitality, retail and food service now have several rights on paper that do not exist in practice.

"The emergency room is the default health care provider for so many people in this country", said de Blasio. "We know that if people don't know they have a right to something, they're going to think it's not for them", de Blasio said. The healthcare-for-all plan is not limited to American citizens and would also include individuals who can not afford their existing plans.

"Here psychotherapy is a covered benefit, which was not the case in San Francisco", he said. It will cover all five boroughs by 2021, costing at least $100 million on an annual basis, the city said. Recipients will pay for coverage on a sliding scale with those who can not pay at all receiving free care.

Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx, New York, on January 8, 2018. "NYC Care will provide a primary care doctor and will provide access to specialty care, prescription drugs, mental health services, hospitalization, and more". There are approximately 600,000 New Yorkers without health care coverage.

In 2006, when Newsom was mayor of San Francisco, the city created a universal healthcare program for uninsured and low-income residents, which has been eyed as a potential model for the rest of California. The 2019 legislative season kicks off Wednesday.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis says she does not agree with this plan.

"If you work hard and you don't get a break that's not fair", said the Democratic mayor, who said more than 500,000 full-time and part-time workers in the city now have no paid vacation days or personal days. "The mayor must stop abusing the middle class and treating us like his personal ATM".
