Arbor, since it is essentially a
specialist medical community.
AS WITH the rest of the econ-
omy, it is difficult to discern
just how and why medical bills
have risen so sharply. But many
observers claim that the Ameri-
can method of practicing medi-
cine is at fault.,
"In the American, or fee-for-
service system, there is a lot of
r'oom for potential abuses," ex-
plains Pierce. "Patients pay
doctors for doing things for
them, as opposed to paying
them for their help in general.
We pay for procedure in medi-
cine."
Maidlow calls this type of
practice "defensive medicine,"
and explains, "A doctor orders
tests so he doesn't miss any-
thing."
ORDERING A battery of tests
increases the patient's final bill
in addition to the doctor's fee,
but it protects a physician from
possible malpractice suits,
which have also risen sharply
in the past few years.
"Doctors tend to take the
total approach," DeWitt com-
ments. "They give the complete
medical w o r k o u t and run
through all possible origins of
the illness. Then they decide
which of a number of likely or
not so likely diseases it could
Ibe."
He says the English system,
which takes a more s -lective
approach, is cheaper and usual-
ly more comfortable for the
patient.
"THEY RELY on pysical
diagnosis, questioning, and phy-

sical exams instead of medical
tests," he asserts.
Other factors contributing to
high medical costs include mal-
practice insurance rates, in-
creased prices of medical sup-
plies, and of course, inflatian.
Hospitalization rates have a.so
risen dramatically, for many of
the same reasons but with odd-
ed pressure from wages.
"SEVENTY per cent of our
hospital costs are personnel,"
Maidlow says. "Ten years ago
the average wage was $2.00 an
hour. Now the wage is ever
$4.50 an hour. Hospital costs are
rising because workers get paid
union rates."
Maidlow maintains that St.
Joseph's is also feeling the cost
squeeze.
"We lose half a million a
year, because we charge cur
patients what it costs us," he
claims.
VERA HIRSCHMAN, a nurse
at University Hospital, suggests
the hospital could cut its costs
by instituting procedural re-
forms.
"Instead of hospitalizing peo-
ple for tests, it would be 1heaper
to keep them as outpatients in-
stead," she says. "And there
is so much waste - unused
paper, charts, paper clips, all
get thrown away. If they were
kept. it would do something."
Eventually it becomes a vi-
cious circle. The price of health
care continues to rise, and sick
people begin to postpone that
visit to the doctor until they be-
come seriously ill.
Then they appear at the
emergency rooms, where treat-
ment is even more expensi,;P
and puts a greater strain on
both the patients and the health
care system.

Bethesda Naval Medical Center,
which he entered Tuesday.
Albert (D-Okla.) was asked at
a news conference if he as-
s';med that Mills would not be
chairman if he returns to Con-
gress.
"I think that's a pretty ac-
curate statement," he said, but
indicated the problems of select-
ing the committee chairman for
the 94th Congress would be
treated gingerly.
TOM BROWNE, a hospital
spokesman, said Mills' family
requested that he be allowed
no visitors except his wife.
Browne said the request was
also "a medical decision."
WITHOUT the speaker's sup-
port, there was virtually no
chance he could remain as
chairman of the committee.
And Waggonner said he didn't
think Mills would choose to re-
main in the House if he was not
in his powerful post.
"We don't want to hurt a man
who has done so much for Con-
gress for 36 years," Albert said.
"He has a great record. He is
one of the greatest congress-
men of our generation but he is
a sick man."
