NYC's Guaranteed Health Care Plan

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 for more information or call (844) NYC-4NYC to make an appointment.
