Prof. Dickinson Lauds Medical
Benefits Now Offered to Public

Student ...

Plans for general hospitalization
and care of the sick through nomi-
nal insurance fees are becoming more
widespread everyday, Prof. C. Z. Dick-
inson of the economics department
said in an interview yesterday.
Many of the people who formerly
could not afora proper hospitaliza-
tion- and medical care now receive
benefits through such systems as the
Blue Cross and the Rhode Island and
Ford Motor Company sickness com-
pensation plans, he pointed out.
The Blue Cross, said Professor
Dickinson, demonstrates the popu-
lar demand for an effective hospi-
talization plan. On the University
of Michigan campus alone, accord-
ing to figures presented by H. P.
Wagner, Chief Accountant of the
Business Office, 1680 hospitaliza-
tion certificates, which may cover
from one to ten people, have been
issued. This organization, Profes-
sor Dickinson said, i typical of the
current trend toward hospitaliza-
tion security.
Today there are 75 Blue Cross Plans

o1 child victims of war. He is execu-

in the United States, five in Canada,
and one in Puerto Rico, to which
nearly 17 million subscribe. These
plans relieve the ill of financial wor-
ries, the employer of the necessity of
extending credit, the doctor of the
problem of sharing with a hospital
the little money a poor man is able
to give, and the community of the
obligation of granting free or partly-
free care to the incapacitated. To
promote the best organization, Blu
Cross plans, hospitals, and the com-
munity are bound together by stand-
ards set by the American Hospital
Association in1933, such as the re-
quirements for adequate representa-
tion of the entire community in the
governing bodies, strictly non-profit
operation, and free choice of hospital
and physician.
The group insurance plan, ar-
ranged by the UAW-CIO union in
the Ford Motor Company, which
provides for hospital and surgical
expense benefits, life insurance,
and weekly accident and sickness
benefits for employees, as well as
for hospital and surgical expense
benefits for their dependents, fur-
ther exemplifies the trend toward
sickness insurance, Professor Dick-
inson said. The same trend, he
said, has produced proposals like
the Wagner-Mwrray-Dingell bill
and the Beveridge plan for na-
tional health insurance. Among
leaders in the organized study of
Medical Economics is Dr. Nathan
Sinai, of the School of Public
The Rhode Island law of 1942,
which provides for cash benefits to
workers unable to perform their du-
ties because of illness, illustrates an-
other type of compensation plan,
Professor Dikinson said. This is a
compulsory system, financed entire-
ly by the proceeds of a one percent
tax deducted from worker's wages,
allowing up to 21 weeks in any year.
Many people, besides wanting hos-
pitalization, would like a system that
would include medical care, Profes-
sor Dickinson remarked, pointing out
that at the University a good per-
centage of those who subscribe to
the Blue Cross hospitalization plan
also participate in a related surgical
benefit organization. In a recent
poll, 92 percent of those interviewed
favored hospitalization, while only 55
percent replied affirmatively to the
suggestion of insurance to cover medi-
cal care. Moreover, many believe that
"socialized medicine" would follow a
plan for insurance which would in-
clude the physician's services. Den-
tal care has also been considered on
an insurance basis.
