Dr. Forsyth praised the generos-
ity of American Jews as builders
of many projects in Israel.
He said that while finding so
much to commend there also is
evidence of the "problem of up-
grading the Arabs.'
The delegates, acting for 13 af-
filiated Zionist groups and four
congregational corporate members,
made a strong plea, in a resolu-
tion addressed to President Nixon,
for immediate sale of Phantoms
needed for Israel's defense. The
resolution commended the 78 U.S.
Senators who are in support of
defensive action for Israel.
Prompt Claims Ease
To avoid delay in Medicare pay-
ment, patients should file claims
promptly after they get their doc-
tor bills, according to Sam F.
Test, Social Security district man-
ager at the Detroit-Northwest of-
fice, 17500 Lahser.
Many people let their medical
bills accumulate until the end of
the year and then file their claim.
This tends to create a clerical
backlog that can cause delays in
payments, Test said.
Claims are filed on "Request
for Medicare Payment" forms
available at most doctors' offices
and at any Social Security office.
Test said Dec. 31 is the deadline
for filing Medicare claims for serv-
ices rendered Oct. 1, 1969, through
Sept. 30, 1970.
Medical insurance is the volun-
tary part of Medicare. It is avail-
able to almost everyone 65 or
over and help pay for doctor bills
and certain other health care
services. It is funded by individual
premiums that are matched by
the federal government and pays
80 per cent of reasonable charges
above the $50 deductible for cov-
Medicare hospital insurance,
funded through regular contribu-
tions to Social Security, requires
no premium payments. It helps
pay for hospital care and certain
related services for people 65 and
