In a bid to compete with rival auto-services, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday that he’s proposing that car service providers offer personalized insurance options and offer more personalized auto-diagnostic services, with a goal of increasing competition and innovation in the industry.
The move comes as the city struggles to find a viable replacement for its auto industry, which was left devastated by the 2009 financial crisis and is now in a prolonged state of transition.
The proposal would create a new federal agency that would establish a “mobile diagnostics service” in the City’s Health Department.
Under the proposal, the agency would be headed by Dr. Robert Ritchie, who previously headed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a former U.S. surgeon general who has served on the National Academy of Sciences.
The agency would have authority to issue “emergency medical treatment orders” (EMTs), which are written by a doctor for the purpose of preventing medical errors, including heart attacks and strokes.
The order would be issued on a case-by-case basis.
Under an existing federal law, hospitals are required to provide care to uninsured patients.
But in some cases, those who cannot pay their medical bills are forced to go without care.
Under a new proposal, hospitals could opt to pay the costs of those patients, instead of paying the patients the cost of care themselves.
A recent study by the Center for Health Policy Research at the University of California, Berkeley, found that for every $1 that hospitals were allowed to withhold from patients, they lost $11 in revenue.
The cost of providing medical care for uninsured people is an issue that has dominated New York politics for years, and is often brought up in state-level elections.
“In this case, the City is actually giving patients access to the same services that are available to people who have health insurance, so that’s really a win for New York,” said Andrew Siegel, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business who has studied the issue.
The proposed rule will apply to all car service companies operating in the city, regardless of whether they have a storefront or are operating out of a garage.
“If you have a store, it can be a very large space,” said Nicholas Cappelli, executive director of the Coalition for Affordable Automotive, an industry group.
“The problem is, there are a lot of cars that have to go through the health care system and a lot that don’t.”
The proposal comes as a backlash against the car industry has been building in recent months.
In a series of tweets and other social media posts, New Yorkers have rallied against the new proposal.
The New York Taxi Workers Union called the proposal “a betrayal of our community’s best interest.”
New York’s largest car-service company, Taxi and Limousine Commission, said in a statement that it “does not believe the proposal will improve health care for New Yorkers.”
New Yorkers are also upset that they will no longer be able to use the emergency room at the City of New York Hospital, which is located in the Bronx.
New York has been struggling to keep its hospitals open as the industry has struggled to find funding to stay open and operate.
The city has also been facing criticism over its lack of competition, with hospitals struggling to attract new patients and doctors and some hospitals being closed and shuttered altogether.
The latest attempt to address the problem has been a push by Mayor de Blasio to expand the city’s ambulance fleet, which the city hopes will attract more people to the city.
A report released last month found that more than 1,500 new ambulance calls were made each day in the last 12 months, including 1,903 for non-emergency ambulance-related cases.
A few weeks ago, New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie said that the state is “deeply concerned” about the health impacts of the industry, but the state’s health commissioner has said that New Jersey’s ambulance system is “excellent.”
