to city employees who lost family members to 9/11 illnesses!

https://qns.com/story/2019/09/11/may...-11-illnesses/

Elected officials across Queens voiced support after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he would propose legislation to create parity for all city employees who died of a 9/11-related illness by providing health insurance coverage to their survivors.

Currently, the survivors of first responders and high-ranking public servants such as police officers, firefighters and EMTs receive health insurance from the city, regardless of whether the death occurred during active service or after retirement.

At the same time, survivors of uniformed correction officers and uniformed sanitation workers only receive health insurance if their family members die while in active service, and survivors of employees in other titles who die from 9/11-related illnesses currently do not qualify for city-sponsored health insurance.

Would it not have been better to create title that more resembles content of post? Otherwise one must click to read exactly what is being said even if only marginally interested.

Kinda agree, I was excited as I thought it was for everyone. Don't get me wrong 9-11 people/families should have it but yah you could've made the title more clear.

He's doing it for illegals but not all nyc residences. I know many who don't have insurance because they can't afford it. They have jobs but it isn't provided and they can't afford the $500 a month for it. But yah if your illegal it's free. Which is really messed up for those legal who do work.

I too think the title is misleading.

I thought the idea was to provide health insurance for all NYC residents no matter what their circumstances were.
