FSA Families Participqte In Hospital Plan One hundred farm Security families in Mississippi County are participating In an emergency Jiospi- tnlization and surgery program this year. This Is an increase of 31 families over the number which participated Ixsl year. The fee pel- family Is $10 for 12 months, and cneh member ol the family Is entitled to receive emergency surgery and/or li days hospitallzatlon, providing their family or attending physician certifies the case is an emergency. The hospitals participating' In the program are the Dyess Hospital at Dycss. the Methodist Hospital in Memphis, and tile Collins Chape) Hospital in Memphis [or colored families. The $10 tec paid by each family pooled with the 510 paid by all the other participating families. Then the total amount is divided into 12 equal allotments to pay each month's bills. At the end of each month the hospitals and surgeons submit their liills. If there is enough money allotted for that month, the bills are paid in lull. If the bills exceed that amount, they are paid on a percentage bash Any surplus remaining at the end of a month Is carried over to the end of the year, at which lime any partially paid bills arc pale in" full or on a percentage basis In case the funds are not sufficient lo pay them in full. Last year,. Mississippi Counl'y' families participated only with the two Memphis hospitals. At the close or their fiscal year, April 30. 1344, all hills had been paid In full' At (hat lime, Colins Chapel Hospital had an accrued surplus of ?!C9.- 65, an'd lh e Methodist Hospital had an accrued surplus of $2230.05.
