De Blasio announces health care coverage for all New Yorkers

New Yorkers who apply for NYC Care services will receive primary care-mental and physical health care services included-like physicians, psychotherapy, and pharmaceuticals. "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.

The city said it would also "double down" on its efforts to increase enrollment in MetroPlus, which provides free or affordable health insurance that connects insurance-eligible New Yorkers to a network of providers that includes NYC Health + Hospitals' 11 hospitals and 70 clinics.

He said despite efforts to fully implement Obamacare, there are 600,000 city residents who lack insurance, including undocumented persons who can not access federal benefits.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a plan guaranteeing paid time off for workers in the city.

The NYC Care program launches in the summer of 2019.

According to the Daily News, based on NYPD records, people on parole made up 19% of the city's 289 murders in 2018.

Funding for the new program will require no tax hikes, the mayor said. He estimated that the policy would cover 3.4 million workers, including 500,000 who get no paid vacation time.

The Times reports on Mayor de Blasio's plan to "guarantee health care for all New Yorkers", legal and otherwise. "Get the healthcare you need when you need it". We want people to have primary care, specialty care. First we're getting you your health care.

It was set up in 2013 with the aim of providing long term unemployed women with the tools they need to get the job they want. Meghan Markle has been carrying out her royal duties alongside Prince Harry with a smile on her face.

People respond differently when they know something is guaranteed, he continued. "If we don't help people get the health care, we're going to pay plenty on the back-end when people get really sick". "They end up in the [emergency department] and it could have been prevented easily if they knew where to turn".

He's also repeatedly spoken out against the dangers sanctuary cities pose to USA citizens when illegal immigrant criminals are protected. What do they all have in common?

Otherwise, the city's estimate averages out to $160 per person in medical costs per year. The plan will cost "at least $100 million annually at full scale", the press release noted.

The mayor was expected to provide details at a news conference later in the morning at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx. Mayor de Blasio is an expert at unveiling cloud-castles and proclaiming himself a master builder. They have a name, an address. They need it right now.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington state proposed a statewide public health insurance option available to anyone who is not covered by an employer.

Although Republicans held majorities in both the House and the Senate for the first two years of Trump's presidency, lawmakers could not reach an agreement on funding the border wall - and punted on the issue.

The New York Transportation Department reported that 196 people were killed in traffic accidents through December 26 a year ago, an 11 percent decrease from 2017. However, de Blasio believes it will ultimately save the city money by drastically reducing residents' trips to the emergency room.
