Traffic Deaths In NYC Hit 100-Year Low | Somers

Everyone in New York City is guaranteed the right to health care said Mayor Bill de Blasio

NYC mayor Bill de Blasio announced a new plan to provide all New York City residents with health care coverage.

MAYOR BILL De Blasio (second from right) announces a plan to offer low-cost or free health insurance to low-income New Yorkers.

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. 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.

"We are proposing to the state Legislature that we have a public option that is available throughout the state of Washington so that we can increase the ability to move forward on the road to universal health care in the state of Washington", said the governor, who is considering a run for president in 2020.

De Blasio's office credited the law, informally known as Obamacare, with bringing the number of uninsured Americans down to almost half of what it was in 2013. Early detection and treatment cuts health-care costs overall and saves hospitals money, she said.

"New Yorkers need a break!" he declared, sarcastically dismissing concerns that the policy might have negative ramifications.

Coming to Line View , the Smart TV is partially unrolled, and users can manage specifics tasks that do not require a TV screen. With Apple HomeKit support, customers will be able to control their LG TV using the Home app or by asking Siri.

"We'll put the money in to make it work; it's going to save us money down the line", de Blasio said on MSNBC. "From this moment on in New York City, everyone is guaranteed the right to health care". The mayor is trying to do what some of his predecessors attempted-shift patients away from the emergency room and into primary care, or clinics.

The NYC Care program will give people access to medical, pharmacy, mental health and substance abuse services.

"Undocumented young adults should not have to worry about losing their health coverage when they turn 19", said Newsom, describing the effort as "another major step toward universal coverage".

People who are uninsured but earn too much to qualify can enroll in MetroPlus, which offers Medicare, Medicaid and plans sold on the state's health insurance marketplace. "It is the worst way to get health care". "I refuse the notion that these folks don't deserve health care", he said. No U.S. city or state requires paid time off for workers, though Puerto Rico does require employers to pay for time off. Once the program is fully operational, interested parties can either call 311 or visit nyc.gov, and staff will set them up with a primary care contact. He added that NY has a public health insurance option, MetroPlus, that the city aims to improve, expand and support through NYC Care.

State Sen. David Frockt, a Democrat from Seattle, said he would sponsor legislation for a public option.

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.
