Health Plans; Should They Pay All Bills By PAUL SOUTHWICK WASHINGTON ( U P ) -- S h o u l d prepaid health plans pay all of your doctor's bills, including those for home calls? That's one of the tough issues tackled by the House Commerce Committtee which is trying to fine out what the government can do to promote better protection for American families against big medical bills. What Congress decides may set the pattern for m e d i c a l care throughout the country. Agree in General The American Medical Assn. and commercial insurance companies agree in general that health insurance should be aimed at the big bills that might ruin a family financially. "A certain amount of medical care is an expectable item on any family budget," Dr. Walter B. Martin, AMA president-elect, told the committee. But AFL and CIO representatives argued that health plans should cover virtually everything. T h e y say many plans, like the AMA-cn- clorscd Blue Cross-Blue Shield, do not cover preventive and diagnostic care. They also contend such plans promote over-use of hospitals because they cover doctor bills only when the patient is hospitalized. For Broader Coverage Blue Cross and Blue Shield representatives concede they haven't THE REV. V. V. DELORIA solved all problems. But they say .hey are for broader coverage and bigger benefits -- for which, they nclcl, subscribers must be willing o pay higher premiums. According to Dr. C h a r l e s G. layclen, executive director of the Massachusetts M e d i c a l Service lino Shield, "there is no evidence hat the public generally is ready o pay what comprehensive benefits :ost." On this score, advocates of prepaid group practice health plans ;ay they have the answer. Under group practice, doctors earn together and agree (o take care of a group of subscribers for certain regular monthly payments. "he doctors' income is derived rom the payments, not, as under Blue Shield, from reimbursement n a "fee-for-service" basis. Henry J. Kaiser, West Coast -in- ustrialist, organized a group prac-! ice plan now covering 400,000 per- ons in California, Oregon, a n c Vashington. He told the House ommittee similar plans through ut the country could cover 30 mil on persons. He said they couh: rovide comprehensive medical, urgical and hospital care of better uality and at lower rates than r c s c n t, limited fee-for-service lans. Kaiser's P l a n Kaiser's plan provides doctor's are in the office, home and hospi al; all hospital care, with up to 11 days for each sickness or in iry; nursing; emergency serv ces; operations; and drugs anc nedicine while the patient is. hos italized. The plan emphasizes 'preventive care," Kaiser said. Monthly dues range from S3.2 or a single subscriber to $0.95 for subscriber with two or more amiJy dependents. There are also small supplemental charges" for ertain other services. Some AMA officials and state nd count}' medical societies object 3 group practice on grounds it eprives the patient of a " f r e e hoice" of physicians. But group practice advocates rgued t h a t a patient should be ven the "free choice" of joining group if he wants to. He can al- ays get out.
