On Twitter, De Blasio wrote that there would be a public option and a new program called NYC Care.
It will be fully available across all five boroughs in 2021 at an estimated cost of $100 million a year.
The plan, however, is not being welcomed by all Staten Island officials. The city is composed of about 8.6 million total residents, according to Census Bureau estimates and a 2018 Department of City Planning analysis.
In a tweet, de Blasio said the plan will "ensure the first stop for people isn't the emergency room".
The state's similarly liberal governor, Andrew Cuomo, previously spoke about health-care-for-all prior to being elected to a third term previous year.
The city plans to spend at least $100 million per year on the 600,000 or so who don't qualify for insurance or are in the country illegally can receive medical treatment, the New York Times reported. The total costs may just be subsidized by the city if the individual is deemed to be someone who can afford to contribute to the cost.
When asked why New Yorkers should pay for the health care of undocumented immigrants or young invincibles, De Blasio said they already pay plenty when the community isn't healthy.
"We are saying the word guarantee because we can make it happen", the mayor added, emphasizing that the program would be unprecedented in the United States.
The President and Chief Executive Officer of the Island's Project Hospitality, the Rev. Terry Troia, said she was thrilled by the mayor's plan. "It's not a win win for anybody".
De Blasio said the city will make NYC Care "seamless" so that "people are encouraged to get the health care they actually need and never get to the point where they end up in the emergency room". "I look forward to learning more about cost and logistics of this proposal". "We now have in New York City something that we can build on; we have a public [health care] option that we are ready to make much bigger". Mayor de Blasio is an expert at unveiling cloud-castles and proclaiming himself a master builder.
"Health care is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it", said Mayor de Blasio.
New York City is a sanctuary city that defies USA immigration enforcement laws, protects illegal immigrants from deportation, and limits local cooperation with federal enforcement officers.
President and CEO of the NYC Health + Hospitals Mitchell Katz said because it was a "comprehensive clinic" if someone needed hospital services, the city would help them get to another Health + Hospital facility.
