New York City will spend up to $100 million a year to expand health care coverage to people without health insurance, including immigrants who are in the USA illegally, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday announced plans to launch "the largest, most comprehensive plan in the nation" to guarantee health care coverage for all city residents, including those in the country illegally. Through our own public option and a new program called NYC Care, we'll ensure the first stop for people isn't the emergency room.

Overall, the program is estimated to cost $100 million per year. The idea is to avoid going to an emergency room for non-emergency situations, freeing them up for their intended objective.

"As this plan moves forward, my administration looks forward to answers on questions such as the details of the plan's financing, the impact on existing health care programs and the quality of care that will be offered within the public option", said Adams. "We're already paying an exorbitant amount to pay for health care the wrong way when what we should be doing is helping them get the primary care".

While the City Council is overwhelmingly controlled by Democrats, the plan is likely to engender opposition from the city's business community, which has already cried foul over the mayor's tax increases. The city's more than 600,000 uninsured residents, including its more than 300,000 undocumented residents, are included in this de Blasio guarantee.

Mayor Bill de Blasio: "The ultimate solution is single-payer health insurance for this whole country, or Medicare for all". Nor was arithmetic presented to document how much the city would save on city-paid emergency and hospital care by making preventive care more accessible.

Nokia 8.1 Plus with pinhole selfie camera revealed in crisp renders
Today, we are seeing a new rumor that shows renders of a device that is claimed to be called the Nokia 8 .1 Plus. It will use a USB-type C charging port, and it will have a dual rear camera with Zeiss lenses and dual flash.


It will also aim to provide the uninsured with a range of services, including primary-care physicians, mental health services and prescription drugs, through the network of hospitals and clinics run by the city Health and Hospitals Corp. "They need health care; their families need health care".

"No state has more at stake on the issue of health care".

The program marks the Democratic mayor's effort to address the progressive priority of providing universal healthcare coverage. No U.S. city or state requires paid time off for workers, though Puerto Rico does require employers to pay for time off.

He ruled-out raising taxes but conservatives, such as the chairmen of the Conservative Party of NY, have their doubts about the feasibility of the mayor's health care program.

How about the Mayor of New York City take care of the people that was born here, like the ones that are sleeping on our streets.

Indeed, NYC Care would be a mix of insurance and direct spending.
