MEDICARE CLAIMS HANDLED SIMPLY

When medicare began on July 1, 1966, there were two ways for people to get their doctor bills paid under the program. The first called for the doctor’s agreeing to claim an 80 percent payment direct from medicare, by filling out a simple one-page form. The other required the beneficiary to pay the bill and then apply for the medicare payment. During the first year and a half of medicare, about half the claims for doctor bills were put in directly by doctors.

Congress has now eliminated the need for the beneficiary to pay the bill first, in cases where the doctor does not make the claim himself. As of Jan. 1, 1968, the beneficiary needs only an itemized bill — not an itemized, receipted bill.

BONDS FIXED AT $2,500.00

It took U.S. Commissioner Weil 20 seconds to give a decision in the case of J. Moes, who must now stand trial in federal court at Coeur d’Alene. Moes, who ranches near Newport, was charged with making seditious utterances. His neighbors testified at his hearing that they heard him make such remarks as the “Red Cross is nothing but a fake;” “the president is no different from the Kaiser;” “wait until Uncle Sam’s soldiers get up against the Germans” and “America never fought a real war and though she had taken up arms before, she always hollered for help.”
