The New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) recently reminded its licensees that, “thanks to additional federal funding, [drivers] may be eligible for the agency’s Essential Plan, which is available through the New York State of Health Official Health Plan Marketplace. Qualifying individuals with lower incomes can access preventative care, prescription drugs, dental benefits, vision benefits, and more. This plan has no deductible and zero monthly premiums.
