    Not to be outdone by the other New York resident who is grabbing all the headlines with her "Green New Deal," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has just unveiled his new plan to launch the largest, most comprehensive plan in the nation to guarantee health care for every New Yorker.
    “Health care is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it,” said Mayor de Blasio.
    “While the federal government works to gut health care for millions of Americans, New York City is leading the way by guaranteeing that every New Yorker has access to quality, comprehensive access to care, regardless of immigration status or their ability to pay.”

    The plan will reportedly serve the 600,000 New Yorkers without insurance by strengthening NYC’s public health insurance option, MetroPlus, and guaranteeing anyone ineligible for insurance – including undocumented New Yorkers – has direct access to NYC Health + Hospitals’ physicians, pharmacies and mental health and substance abuse services through a new program called NYC Care.



    The press release states that NYC Care will launch in summer 2019 and will roll out geographically, starting in the Bronx. It will be fully available to all New Yorkers across the five boroughs in 2021. The program will cost at least $100 million annually at full scale. Additionally, MetroPlus will announce a series of enhancements throughout the year.
    “No one should have to live in fear,” the mayor said.
    “No one should go without the health care they need. Health care is a human right. In this city, we’re going to make that a reality. ... From this moment on in New York City, everyone is guaranteed the right to health care.”
    Virtue well and truly signaled, and of course there is no mention of how this will be funded (70% marginal tax rates on the richest of rich seems fair right?)

    Mayor Bill de Blasio @NYCMayor

    Health care isn’t just a right in theory, it must be a right in practice. Today I’m announcing a plan to guarantee health care for all New Yorkers. 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.

    This will be done on the backs of the middle class they profess to champion. All they care about are new ignorant voters. Their policies are a major disaster for the United States of America. If you have children and grandchildren, wake up so they can enjoy the freedom and self-determination we take for granted. If you don't it will disappear forever.

    Liberals' plans extend health care to illegals, placing them on par with U.S. citizens

    The Washington Times - Tuesday, January 8, 2019

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday that the city will provide illegal immigrants with a way to obtain affordable health care as part of a broader program to cover city residents traditionally shut out of insurance options.
    The liberal mayor said it is unacceptable that 600,000 city residents still lack options. They include immigrants who cannot access federal benefits but rack up costs anyway when they show up at emergency rooms.
    Across the country, meanwhile, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a more targeted push this week to extend health care benefits to young adult illegal immigrants, placing them on par with U.S. citizens who can stay on their parents’ plans under Obamacare.

    Taken together, the proposals reopen the thorny debate over providing taxpayer-funded benefits to people living in the U.S. illegally, an idea that flies in the face of Mr. Trump’s fight against illegal immigration and places that offer them sanctuary.

    Half the 600,000 residents aided by NYC Care are undocumented immigrants

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city will spend up to $100 million per year to expand health care coverage to people without health insurance including immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

    The comprehensive health care plan unveiled by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio this week drew applause from the Democrat's supporters but also skepticism from those in the city who question the value and cost of the effort.
    De Blasio said NYC Care will provide primary and specialty care from pediatric to geriatric to 600,000 uninsured New Yorkers. De Blasio estimated the annual cost at $100 million.
    "This is the city paying for direct comprehensive care (not just ERs) for people who can’t afford it, or can’t get comprehensive Medicaid - including 300,000 undocumented New Yorkers," Eric Phillips, spokesman for de Blasio, boasted on Twitter.
    State Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican representing parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island, criticized the proposal as an example of de Blasio using city coffers "like his personal ATM."
    "How about instead of giving free health care to 300,000 citizens of other countries, you lower property taxes for our senior citizens who are being forced to sell the homes they’ve lived in for decades because they can’t afford to pay your 44 percent increase in property taxes?" she said.
    Seth Barron, associate editor of City Journal and project director of the NYC Initiative at the Manhattan Institute think tank, noted that the city's uninsured, including undocumented residents, can receive treatment on demand at city hospitals. The city pays more than $8 billion to treat 1.1 million people through its New York City Health + Hospitals program, he wrote.
    Barron said the mayor is simply trying to shift patients away from the emergency room and into clinics. He said that dividing $100 million by 600,000 people comes to about $170 per person, the equivalent of one doctor visit.

    "Clearly, the money that the mayor is assigning to this new initiative is intended for outreach, to convince people to go to the city’s already-burdened public clinics instead of waiting until they get sick enough to need an emergency room," Barron wrote. "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."
    The plan expands upon the city's MetroPlus public option plan, as well as the state's exchange through the federal Affordable Care Act. NYC Care patients will be issued cards allowing them access to medical services, de Blasio said.
    The mayor's plan has plenty of support. Mitchell Katz, president and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals, said the plan will help his agency "give all New Yorkers the quality care they deserve.” State Sen. James Sanders Jr., who represents parts of Queens, said he looks forward "to seeing the Care NYC program grow and prosper as it helps to create a healthier New York.”
    The drumbeat for improved access to health care is not limited to New York.
    California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday asked Congress and the White House to empower states to develop "a single-payer health system to achieve universal coverage, contain costs and promote quality and affordability."
    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee on Tuesday proposed Cascade Care, a public option plan under his state's health insurance exchange.
    "We’re going to do all we can to protect health care for Washingtonians," he said. "This public option will ensure consumers in every part of the state will have an option for high-quality, affordable coverage.”

    ICE needs to go in and raid these medical facilities.

    These facilities ARE a business...should not be aiding and abetting illegal aliens.

    Unless life threatening...report them to ICE and deport them out of our country.
