Universal Health Plan for City by the Bay?

San Francisco moved closer to becoming the nation's first city to provide health care coverage for all its residents when the city's board of supervisors unanimously approved a plan on July 18 that would give adults access to medical services regardless of immigration or employment status. The plan's estimated cost is $200 million a year. Financed by local government, mandatory contributions from employers, and income-adjusted premiums, the universal care plan's coverage would include the cost of checkups, prescription drugs, X-rays, ambulance rides, blood tests, and operations. But unlike health insurance, it would not pay for services obtained outside San Francisco.
