Medicare Claims Attend Conference Bazaar Slated Hepburn's Radiology Area To Add X-Ray December 31 ° n Alcoholism For Saturday Many people who could receive payment of some portion of their medical expenses by Medicare los.e money because they do not file their claims within the time limit stated John P. Moulton, manager of the Ogdensburg Social Security Office. Anyone age 65 or over who is enrolled in Part B of Medicare is urged to check all of his medical bills now to be sure he has not overlooked any old ones. Moulton said that claims for medical expenses incurred between Oct. 1, 1969 and Sept. 30., 1970, must be filed no later than Dec. 31, 1971. These claims should be sent in im- mediately to avoid the usual year-enu rush and the resulting long wait for payment.

The money is for use during the current fiscal year. The committee cautioned against \drastic reductions\ when the money bill reaches the House floor next week. It said the $2.5 billion it lopped off the $73.5 billion requested by the President would not adversely affect essential programs. The new funds would provide for 2.5 million active-duty military personnel by June 30, 1972, and 11,924 active air- craft and 396 active warships including 16 attack carriers. New warships to join the fleet .this year include six nuclear attack submarines, with five more to be' constructed. Active-duty military personnel will drop about 200,-000 during the year. In a report accompanying the bill, the committee said intelligence estimates show the Soviet Union \has passed the United States in number of in- tercontinental ballistic missiles on launches.\ \The United States still maintains an Rocky, Lindsay Appeal To Washington To Keep Jobs In NYC NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Nelson,A. Rockefeller and Mayor John V. Lindsay appealed separately to the federal gov- ernment today to save 800 jobs threatened by the realignment of the Department of Defense regional offices here. * -° Rockefeller wrote to John Eh- rlichmari, presidential assistant for domestic affairs, that many of the employes of the Department of Defense Contract Service Administration were \unskilled workers from minority groups.\ Rockefeller said he felt \it should be administration policy to increase • federal jobs in New York State, and not eliminate them.\ Lindsay, in a letter to Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird, said, \It seems inconceivable that the Defense Department would consider eliminating jobs in New York City at the same time • that the U.S. Labor Department and the city are attempting to create them through such programs as the Emergency Employment Act.\ t. strategic adequate and credible deterrent \force the committee added, \Since our missile-launching sub- marines still outnumber those of the So- viet Union, and our manned strategic bomber aircraft far outnumber those of the Soviets.\ It said the Soviet Union has turned its attention to construction of a first-class, deep-water navy. New funds recommended are $1.46 billion more than were provided last year, with the committee explaining that because of inflation the defense dollar buys \far less than it bought in past years Highly competent personnel and good equipment are two characteristics of the radiology department at A. Barton Hepburn Hospital in Ogdensburg, but department members are among the first to admit service to patients can be improved. Becauseof its immeasurable value as a diagnostic facility for any number of injuries and illnessess, a hospital's radiology department is one of the busiest areas of the hospital. Considering the number ' of newly developed uses for x-ray machines and •the increasing number of patients to be accomodated, it is not surprising that places like the Hepburn Hospital have outgrown radiology facilities which were adequate a few years ago. Hepburn Hospital's radiology department seemed like a busy place in 1962 when 6,300 examinations were conducted.'But last year the number had shot up to more than 10,000 examinations annually! As a result, the department can ' scarcely keep pace with the demands placed upon it. Carolyn Fayette, chief radiologic technician at the hospital for the past, 20 years, explained that simply keeping pace with routine procedures is ex- tremely difficult and it is impossible to try any new procedures. \I know patients must get upset having to wait as long as they sometimes do,\ she said. \But our three x-ray rooms are in constant use all day long.\ Miss Fayette added, \Not - only are patients being made to wait, but they are being deprived of certain modern procedures, which doctors 'would like to employ but can't for lack of equipment.\ On^ such procedures which is very heipful in pinpointing certain internal ailments is the angiogram. This is a procedure which enables doctors to examine organs by tracing the flow of an injected dye as it passes through blood • vessels within the organs. There is no hospital in St. Lawrence County which has equipment for doing angiograms. \In addition to diagnostic services, a number of our doctors would like us to be able to offer radiological treatments, someday,\ Miss Fayette said. She noted, however, \Our primary concern is tv be able to offer the patients better service in the areas we now have.\ One factor contributing to some of the department's difficulties is the amount of time available machines must be occupied in performing certain lengthy procedures such as urograms. These take a considerable amount of time to complete and cannot be in- terrupted until finished. Meanwhile, patients with broken bones and other problems are kept waiting. \Just one more machine would help a great deal,\ Miss Fayette said, '\fhe fourth machine would help us process the routine cases .rapidly while we are still able to do the lengthier procedures.\ Emblems such as these and similar' ones found in most departments of the hospital have motivated the hospital board of directors to initiate a $3.2 million expansion and improvement program for the Hospital. For the radiology department the plan will result in the addition of one x-ray machine room, needed storage space, and closer proximity to the emergency room which will also be relocated and expanded. A $i million fund raising campaign has been started among the residents of Ogdensburg and vicinity to help finance the program designed to give these same residents better services.' The improvements will permit Hepburn Hospital to f etaiii its role as the leading medical center of the area. the -remaining. $2.2 million is to be borrowed on a long-term loan from the State New York.
