"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, de Blasio's press secretary, tweeted Tuesday morning.

According to Bloomberg, NYC Care will begin in the Bronx this year, and is expected to be available to all New Yorkers in 2021. "For people who have the ability to pay, we'll be expecting that people pay what they can".
'Emergency rooms are the default health care provider for so many people in this country.
'There are huge savings, humanly and economically, to getting it right.
Residents will be able to access the program via the city's website or calling the city of NY at 311.
