De Blasio touts $100M plan to provide healthcare for all NYC residents

New York City will begin guaranteeing comprehensive health care to every single resident regardless of someone's ability to pay or immigration status, an unprecedented plan that will protect the more than half-a-million New Yorkers now using the ER as a primary provider, Mayor Bill de Blasio said. It is expected to launch in the Bronx first this summer, and be available in the other boroughs by 2021. "We want them to have primary care, we want them to have specialty care", De Blasio crowed in a press release, according to local media. "From this moment on in New York City, everyone is guaranteed the right to health care".

The plan will allow residents to see a primary care doctor for their healthcare issues, rather than relying on emergency rooms, said the mayor. 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.

"This is a big step in the right direction-but healthcare is still a human right, and must be extended to everyone in the state!"

Every person participating in the plan, called "NYC Care", will be assigned a primary care doctor.

On Twitter, De Blasio wrote that there would be a public option and a new program called NYC Care. Aviles said that the city was renowned for its "significant innovations in expanding access to care for immigrants, including our financial assistance policies that provide deeply discounted fees for the uninsured, our comprehensive communications assistance for limited English proficiency patients, and our strictly enforced confidentiality policies that afford new immigrants a sense of security in accessing needed care". Right now, he explained, numerous city's uninsured put off medical attention when they need it because they assume they can't afford it. We want to increase the amount of healthcare that people can reach.

'Emergency rooms are the default health care provider for so many people in this country.

In a statement to MSNBC, a spokesperson for the mayor clarified earlier reports indicating the plan will provide health insurance instead of care. "That's the ideal, that what we need", de Blasio said.

De Blasio added, "Republicans in Washington are trying to tear down health care". Trying to take away the right to health care. 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. The mayor does not plan on raises taxes to pay for the plan.

Why slowing economies could prod USA and China to reach deal
China's economy has been decelerating since the government pulled back on bank lending a year ago to try to curb a run-up in debt. Another 33 percent of companies said they plan to move out of China in the next six to 12 months, according to the UBS report.

Apple admits it is going to miss iPhone sales
Trump also seemed to suggest that the reason for Apple's recent misstep was the location of their manufacturing plants. For one thing, Apple is rolling out new 5G capabilities into its products much more slowly than its rivals are.
