Sen. Anderson's Health Han for The Aged Has inside Track WASHINGTON -'The holiest poliio on; the legislative · platter wlitn Cohgrwi returns in Aug- ·.«is! wilt be. K proposal'for medical fin ttit the (ged IrUfMue- ied Jiuif-30'by'.^iin, Olnlori P. ;Anderson D-N,M,). . . ' The Aftdc^on ; plqh' is .deSlln- !ed to become .the local point in ;otw of the biggest Isstles Cari- gross tfHI attempt-to resolve in its concluding session! whether .or not ID establish medical beite- I fit payments for the hg^d as an , integral part of the Social Sectir- \ ity system. Hest Cliance of Passage Anderson'* proposal has been pushed to the center of (he s' as a moderate mensure'standing the best eliance of adoption. It keeps benefits within narrower limits than similar, earlier Democratic plans proposed by Rep, Aime J. Forand (D R,I.) and Sen. Pat McNamara (D · Mich.), but retains the key feature: medical insurance. self-financed through Social Security taxes. Observers predict that bf any plan to finance health benefits for the aged through Social Security gets through Congress in Augunt, the Anderson plan will be the ofle. The AF1.-CIO, which says it is "irrevocably committed" to establishment of the Social Security principle in health care for; the aged, has swung behind the proposal. -The American Medical Assn. is eKpeced to oppose it with ihe same vigour it has opposed all earlier Social Security health - care measures. The AMA fears any such plan would be the "foot In the door" for eventual socialitatian of medicine in the United Stales. Costs Less The major selling point of Anderson's plan over earlier versions is its reduced cost. U has been designed carefully to hold benefits within the scope of the extra revenues which would be provided by the proposal's tax- provisions, which would raise payroll taxes by one-quarter of 1 percent each for employers and employees, ami by three-eighths of I percent tor self-employed persons. Benefits in any 12-month period would Include up to 365 days of hospital care, 180 days of skill ed nursing-home care following transfer from a hospital, and up to 365 days of visiting - nursinp iervlce in ths home. : HdwevM, benefits Would bo tt- ilrided to pertofts M or over, the patient Would pay the first t?5 bf hospital care ts well 4j $73 of any hotpltalizntion In *x- cess of 24 days, surgery, piiysi- clans', fees ftnd drugs outside the hospital would covered, and coverage v,ould b* limited IS One continuous period of treatment, thus excluding short, sporadic ' visits to the hospital. Anderson has · proposed that his ptan be tacked on to lha S* cinl Security bill passed June 23 by the ' House. He iaitl it would, supplement,' rather lhan replace, the limited health care program provided in the House bill, The House program called for grand to provide a.utnlnnce W the low Income aged, rather than financing through Social Security taxes. Admlnjlrnllon Proposal The Eisenhower Administration lias its own program for Ihe ag' ed, calling for federal and Itate grants to set up a "medicare program" through which the low-Income aged could receir* medical benefits by paying » |.'l enrollment fee. As an ifteftotlve, participants could receive subsidies to help pay for their private health - Insurance policies. The Administration also has proposed that ils plan be used to supplement the House program, but the proposal has little chance of adoption in the Democratic Congress. The plan was incorporated in a bill Introduced June it) by Sen. Lcvefelt Saltonslall (R Mass.). Chances for the Anderson plan have been confused by eventi at Ihe Democratic National Convention. A number of reports said Senate Majority Leader Lyndon D. Johnson (D Texas) had promised to push a Social Security program for the aged through Congress in August if labor leaders agreed to support--or at least not to veto -- his candidacy for the Democratic Presidential nomination, but the Johnson camp, and labor figures themselves, have denied any such deal, and labor leaders at the convention July 8 reportedly turned thumbs down on Johnson's bid for the nomination.
