The AMA, however, has never taken a stand as to whether H favored federal subsidy of such plans. The commission said in its report to Truman, was that peoplo In low income groups crin't afford adequate medical care—even on pre-paymcnt plans. The commission also called for: 1. The training ol more doctors, nurses and other health personnel. The commission estimates", there may be n shortage .of anywhere from 22.000 to 45,000 doctors by 1060. depending upon the success of proposed methods of organization on a "group" basis In. the meantime, unless more doctors ara trained. 2. Construction of more hospitals. 3. Increased medical research. 4. Support of industrial health and of migratory workers.
