On January 8, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the Administration’s plan to ensure health care for every New Yorker. There are two components of NYC’s Guaranteed Health Care Plan:
- NYC Care: new health care option through NYC Health + Hospitals for New Yorkers who are unable to afford health insurance or are ineligible for health insurance.
- NYC’s Public Option (health insurance option available through plans such as MetroPlus): low-cost, high-quality insurance to connect eligible New Yorkers to care.

Beginning summer 2019, there will be a number of ways you can sign up for NYC Care. In the meantime, NYC Health + Hospitals services are available across the five boroughs.
New Yorkers can call 311 or visit nychealthandhospitals.org for more information or call (844) NYC-4NYC to make an appointment.
