New York City Offers Health Care to Uninsured, Including Illegal Aliens - Mayor

Bill de Blasio

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an even more ambitious program on Tuesday called NYC Care that would provide coverage for all New Yorkers.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio will unveil legislation Wednesday mandating two weeks of paid time off for workers in the city, a move that would guarantee paid time off for an additional 500,000 people. But the $100 million number assumes either that not all $600,000 uninsured individuals will need medical care, or that medical care will be provided at far below market value.

[N] o one should have to live in fear.

'Health care isn't just a right in theory, it must be a right in practice. "Today we celebrate our city's relentless commitment to accessible, high-quality healthcare", Palacio continued. Coverage will also apply to undocumented immigrants. That's fine, as far as it goes, but as a transformative, revolutionary program, it resembles telling people to call the Housing Authority if they need an apartment and then pretending that the housing crisis has been solved.

New York City taxpayers are burdened by a city income tax on top of New York State and federal income taxes they must pay.

The Democratic leaders of California and New York City are taking steps to provide health care coverage to some undocumented residents.

"People from all over the country are going to flood into NY to get their free health care", Thiessen said, adding that he had advice for taxpayers in the country's largest city who will foot the bill.

De Blasio explained a day earlier that the plan, referred to as "NYC Care", will reach almost 600,000 New Yorkers and cost taxpayers at least $100 million.

Amongst the city's roughly 600,000 uninsured that will be guaranteed such care are an estimated 300,000 so-called undocumented New Yorkers - i.e., illegal aliens. Eric Phillips, de Blasio's spokesman, claimed this program is for direct coverage.

NYC Care is expected to launch in the Bronx this summer and be available in the other four boroughs in 2021, the release said. "The city has 4.5 million workers, public and private, this will affect half a million people". The city already runs a MetroPlus Health Plan that covers some 516,000 low-income residents.

"People from all over the country are going to flood into NY to get their free health care", Thiessen said, adding that he had advice for taxpayers in the country's largest city who will foot the bill. "You won't end up in a hospital bed if you actually get the care you need when the disease starts". When you get people in front of a physician in a timely manner, when you avoid hospitalizations and intensive treatments, you cut out a staggering expense: Those savings are projected to help cover NYC Care.
