De Blasio: Healthcare Plan Covers All New Yorkers, Even Undocumented

Declaring that healthcare is "a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it", New York City's Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday unveiled a plan that he said will guarantee comprehensive medical coverage to all 8.6 million city residents, including undocumented immigrants.

"Health care is a human right."- New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

"With the city's own projections of a slowdown of the real estate market, and a volatility on Wall Street, I don't think its the right time to begin an additional large scale entitlement program that will be on the hook to ensure 600,000 people at its start and an unpredictable amount as new folks comes in", Borelli said. And we have now in New York City something that we can build on. Medi-Cal, the state's health insurance program, now will let illegal immigrants remain on the rolls until they are 26, up from 19, according to Newsom's new agenda.

"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".

There are now about 600,000 New Yorkers who were not able to be covered under Obamacare, many of them younger people who do not think they need insurance, he added.

The de Blasio administration said Tuesday that all services will be "affordable on a sliding scale". Officials hope to get the program up and running within two years, and while they weren't able to project wait times for secondary physicians, they hope that participants won't have to wait more than a week or two to see a primary doctor.




On Twitter, De Blasio wrote that there would be a public option and a new program called NYC Care. We want people to have primary care, specialty care.

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.

De Blasio said it will be paid for through the public health care system and he believes it will ultimately save money by preventing trips to the emergency room.

The NYC Care plan would improve that coverage, which already insures some 516,000 people, and aim to reach more of those who are eligible, such as the young and uninsured, and others who qualify but have not applied. "And we can get it to them". "We are doing just the opposite".

'Health care isn't just a right in theory, it must be a right in practice. "For people who have the ability to pay, we'll be expecting that people pay what they can".
