De Blasio touts $100M plan to provide healthcare for all NYC residents

Bill de Blasio

New York City will guarantee "comprehensive health care" to every resident, regardless of someone's income or immigration status, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on MSNBC Tuesday morning. "In this city we're going to make that a reality", de Blasio said during a press conference Tuesday.

By 2021, all New Yorkers in the city's five boroughs will have access to free health care.

De Blasio says that when people know their health care is guaranteed it will change their behavior.

'If folks get primary care or mental health services when they need them at the right point in life, that means you avoid everything from homelessness, incarceration, people losing their jobs'.

Green Bay expected to have hired new head coach
The Packers will hire Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur their head-coaching job, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Packers have been contacting other candidates to let them know the choice is made.


Unlike the MetroPlus plan, NYC Care is a program that leverages the city's hospital system. Aviles said that the city was renowned for its "significant innovations in expanding access to care for immigrants, including our financial assistance policies that provide deeply discounted fees for the uninsured, our comprehensive communications assistance for limited English proficiency patients, and our strictly enforced confidentiality policies that afford new immigrants a sense of security in accessing needed care".

"We also have a way to provide direct health care to a lot of neighbors who happen to be undocumented - they're still part of our community, they need health care, their families need health care", de Blasio added.

The health care programs will include customer-friendly call lines to help New Yorkers "make appointments with general practitioners, cardiologists, pediatricians, gynecologists and a full spectrum of health care services", the news release said.

Of the 8.6 million New Yorkers, the program will target the 600,000 that now don't have insurance, he said.

Will Kevin Hart End Up Hosting the Oscars?
DeGeneres' words were met with criticism online, with many accusing her of giving Hart's homophobic comments a pass. I think that in the times that we're living in, we have to be understanding and accepting of people and change.


And we're doing that here in this city, ' de Blasio said. Mayor de Blasio is an expert at unveiling cloud-castles and proclaiming himself a master builder. We want people to have primary care, specialty care. "We are doing just the opposite". His "health care for all" effort seems little different. The panel concluded, in the words of a Newsday editorial, that "for patients, emphasis would be on primary care instead of hurried emergency-room sessions and days of hospitalization".

"As property taxes continue to rise at an unprecedented and unsustainable speed, impacting homeowners and renters alike, Mayor de Blasio continues to look for ways to spend their hard earned money by placing a heavier burden on the hardworking taxpayers of this city", said Republican Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, who challenged de Blasio in the last election.

The city's more than 600,000 uninsured residents, including its more than 300,000 undocumented residents, are included in this de Blasio guarantee.
