a St: Mickey McCarty Says: FELLOW TAXPAYERS: At the end of 1963 more than 42 million persons were protected by major medical insurance as written by insurance companies, and by June 1, 1964, the number had Mickey grown to an estimated 43.5 million. '-. It is this tremendous growth that has caused the Health Insurance Institute to characterize major medical expense insurance as the fastest growing form of health insurance in the L'r..ted States today. . Catastrophe:ufT med" r irai. sometimes called "catastrophe" insurance, provides benefits ranging up to $10,000 and higher. It helps pay for hospital and surgical care, and a wide variety of other medical services in or out of hospitals, including prescribed medicines and drugs, medical appliances, physicians services, charges by a registered nurse, and ambulance or other needed transportation. ; The first major medical plan went into effect in 1949 and, at the end of 1951, some 108,000 persons had this form of coverage. By the end of 193$, this coverage had jumped to 17,375,000 persons or one out of every 10 people in the civilian population. It protected 42,010,000 per-sons in 1963, or better than one out of every five persons in the civilian population. Jumping: Benefit pay-r a ments under major medical policies have been growing more rapidly than coverage, says the institute. From 1958 to 1963, the number of insured grew nearly 2V2 fold, but the benefit . increase was nearly 3'i fold, climbing from $233 million in 1958 to $S13 million in 1963. Major medical benefits this year are reported to be running 17 per cent ahead of 1963. the Insurance Institute says. " ; All of the nation's 50 states showed representative major medical coverage at the end of 1963, said the institute. New York state had the most persens covered by major medical insurance with 5,403.003, followed by California with 5.273,000. Hawaii was low with 50.CC0. Midwest Second: Indl- a n a was included wan states hav ing more than 1 million per sons covered by major medical policies. Others in the list in clude Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, New Jersey, -Michigan, Massachusetts and Florida. Regionally, the nine Northeastern states had the most persons covered, with a total of slightly more than 12 million. Next came the 12 Midwest states with 11,818, 000. In 20 states throughout the nation more than three-fourths of the civilian population were protected by some form of health insurance at the end of 19S3, the institute reported this week. It said that out of 50 states, only two Alaska and New Mexico had less than 50 per cent of their population insured, while in the remaining 28 states the level of protection was between 50 and 75 per cent- Ensley Fires At Burglars Fleeing Home ' Indianapolis restaurant owner Jack Ensley fired two shots et burglars last night as they ran from his Northwestside home with a mink stole and $560 in cash.
