We Carry Sizes 4 to 12 Widthi AAAAA Narrow to EEE Wide Q Why are chest X-rays always performed as a routine part of a hospital admission? A We asked Dr. Don Bane, a radiologist in the Boynton Beach-Lake Worth area. If the patient is admitted to the hospital for a surgical procedure, chest X-rays are done to see if cancer, pneumonia or any other health problem is present. Then it is evident what complications could occur if a problem went undetected during surgery. On nonsurgical patients, the chest X-ray is more a preventive medicine approach. It is amazing how many people do not have a routine chest X-ray until they are hospitalized. Medicare, it is interesting to note, requires all hospital admissions over the age of 40 to have a chest X-ray and certain laboratory tests. Q Why are Medicare's allowable charges often less than the amount my doctor actually charges? A .- The following answer is trom the Medicare Program Circular 76-17, Attachment I. This is because allowable charges are figured on the basis' of doctors' fees that were charged anywhere from six to 18 months in the past, during what is called the "base year." For example, from July 1, 1974, to June 30, 1975, "allowable charges" were based on what doctors actually charged during the calendar year 1973. Not only that, but the allowable charge is based on the fee most often charged during the year. So if your doctor charged $7 for 51 per cent of his office visits during a base period, and charged $8 for the other 49 per cent of those office visits, the allowable charged would be based on the lower fee of $7. Another reason may be that the fee which covered 75 per cent of the claims received from all physicians in the area for the service in question (office visit) was lower than what your physician charges. And Medicare pays only the lower charge. Q - Why doesn't Good Samaritan hospital accept Medicare ac payment? A - We asked hospital Administrator John Wymer, and what follows is the statement issued by Good Samaritan's Board of Trustees. The Board of Governors fully and carefully considered entering the Medicare program at the time it was enacted in 1966. It was decided that with the limited size of the hospital, its facilities could best continue to provide high quality medical care by remaining a private institution, without such a government program and its resulting controls. Periodically since that time the question of participation in the Medicare program has been discussed, but there has appeared to be no sound reason to change the existing policy. A further full review of this subject is scheduled for consideration at an early meeting of the Board of Governors this season. Whether or not this will result in any change is not possible to predict at this time. Q - Where would a person go for help in a child molesting case? A - David Bludworth, state attorney for Palm Beach County, has established a Sexual Assault Assistance Program for our area. The office is staffed with excellent, qualified, sympathetic individuals. 6" No. 195 100-49C Ginseng s:lZINC $049 PVQV7 10 mg.
