Hospital Service, Inc., of Iowa, the local Blue Cross plan, observed its 5th anniversary Wednesday, with more than 200,000 members in Iowa, according to Dr. George M. Crabb, superintendent of Park hospital. He states that St. Joseph Mercy hospital and Park hospital were among the leadef hospitals who sponsored and started this low-cost, non-profit plan for budgeting hospital* care. Now 70 Iowa hospitals are extending this community service to employed persons and their families in their respective areas. Sister Mary Dorothy, superintendent of St. Joseph Mercy hospital, advises that 3,829 persons in Mason City, or about 14% of the population, now place hospital care in the family budget along with food, clothing, rent, and other necessities, the Blue Cross way--just as 17,000,000 other Americans arc doing. Sister Mary Dorothy also stated that maternity care is the most expensive service given. The waiting period has been shortened to 9 months, and nursery care ot the infant is now included while the mother is in the hospital. Hospital Service, Inc., of Iowa points with pride to its 3,669 prepaid Blue Cross babies up to the end of 1944. Five increases in services have been made in 4£ years. Dr. Crabb, who is a member of the board of directors of the Hospital Service Inc., of Iowa, says the local plan is one of the few Blue Cross plans which extend the same benefits to its members in over 3,000 member hospitals of the other 82 approved Blue Cross plans located in United Stales and Canada. Non-member benefits are available in any hospital in the whole world. Dr. Crabb also states that the local plan is one of 11 mid-west and south-western plans that have 100% reciprocal agreements on transfers of members moving from one territory to another ill their districts.

More than 10,000 persons have Blue Cross through the County Health Improvement associations,, which are sponsored by the Farm Bureaus. These associations make it possible for farmers to have the advantages of group enrollment. Ten counties have completed their first enrollment since the middle o£ last year, and many others are making plans to offer this protection early this year. F- P. G. Latttier, executive director oE the plan, states that Sl,522,133.47 has been paid for hospital care of members since the compnny was formed, of which over $50,000.00 has been paid the hospitals here in Mason City.
