'We want people to get health care when they need health care, ' he added.
The NYC Care program launches in the summer of 2019.
Fees for the NYC Care services will be based on sliding scale charges, meaning people will pay for health care services based on their income.
Wait times to see a primary care doctor would be in line with the one to two weeks it now takes, officials said. The City is committed to strengthening MetroPlus and connecting more independent workers, City vendors and City workers to that option. "Reforming our system also requires an emphasis on promoting preventative medicine, as well as reducing unnecessary visits to emergency rooms; these must be focus points for MetroPlus and the NYC Care program going forward".

The No 10 source said the Prime Minister had always meant to "respond quickly" if she fails to secure the support of the Commons. May told reporters that the only way to avoid such a scenario was for lawmakers to support her deal.
The mayor announced the plan the day after a Democrat on the other side of the country, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, also staked out an aggressive stance. The city's more than 600,000 uninsured residents, including its more than 300,000 undocumented residents, are included in this de Blasio guarantee. It also remained unclear how the city will persuade the "young invincibles" - those who can afford insurance but believe they don't need it - to join up.
The cash bail system in NY has legally disabled numerous city's poor non-violent offenders who sit in cells because they can't afford to get out. In his remarks, de Blasio was clear where he stands.
Not only will NY be a sanctuary city, Mayor de Blasio will now seek $100 million in new spending to provide full comprehensive healthcare for all, including its undocumented immigrants. 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. Primary and specialty care will be part of the city's health care offer, including pediatrics, OB-GYN, mental health and geriatric medical services. "Get used to this criticism-you're going to hear a lot of it".
"To be the fairest big city in America, New Yorkers can't be forced to choose between bringing home a paycheck and taking time off just to disconnect or spend time with loved ones", de Blasio said.
I stand with @NYCMayor de Blasio today in declaring health care is a right for all, not a privilege for only those who can afford care. "No one should go without the health care they need".
