Bronx Gets Priority in de Blasio's NYC Care Initiative

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.

To make matters even worse, more illegal immigrants will now be attracted to New York City because they will have free healthcare at taxpayers' expense, thanks to Mayor Bill de Blasio's expensive social experiment in universal healthcare.

In 2013, Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx announced a new "Integrated Wellness Program" targeting seriously mentally ill people with chronic health problems-the same population that tends to be uninsured, to neglect their own care, and to wind up in the emergency room when their diabetes or cardiovascular disease catches up with them.

NYC Care will start rolling out in coming months and will take more than two years to be fully implemented, de Blasio said. And if health care insurance did cost $166 per person per year then it wouldn't be a problem, would it?

Residents will be able to access the program via the city's website or calling the city of NY at 311.

The mayor is expected to introduce legislation at the City Council that would make the Big Apple the first city in the country to require such paid time off, according to the Washington Post - where the mayor leaked the initiative.

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

"We recognized that obviously health care is not just in theory a right", De Blasio told media ahead of his announcement.

"We applaud Governor Newsom for building on the strong foundation of the Affordable Care Act in his first official action", Lee said in a statement. The new plan provides insurance for visits to doctors outside of hospitals; health experts say that access to regular medical visits can cut down on costly hospital stays.

The emergency room is the "default health care provider for so many people in this country", de Blasio said.

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

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

The mayor portrayed this guarantee of health care as a sequel to insurance gains the city has made through the ACA. "And we can get it to them". This plan will give all of that directly to the people who don't have it in the city'.

The mayor's office insists the NYC Care program is not intended as a substitute for a universal health insurance plan that some Democratic state legislators are pushing for, or a national single-payer plan.
