Original post: Laura F. Redman, NYLPI’s Health Justice Director, was quoted in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s announcement of the largest, most comprehensive plan in the nation to guarantee health care for every New Yorker. The plan will 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:

“New York Lawyers for the Public Interest applauds this ambitious effort to save lives. The City’s continuing commitment to care for New Yorkers who are ineligible or can’t afford insurance means NYC Health + Hospitals can better address the impact of the nation’s healthcare crisis on the people of New York City. As attacks on the Affordable Care Act and healthcare for New Yorkers who are immigrants drive people away from the basic care they need, New York City leads in providing vital help.”
