The - theme, "Show Yourself RALLY DAY PLANS It was just great to attend my first Shelby County se- nior citizen committee meet- ing Monday morning since last Sept. and be greeted so enthusiastically by clapping hands. This was the day Elk Horn handed out the tickets to each center for the Rally Day dinner. All the centers were represented and Earling served the lunch. Elsie Andersen, the Harlan mealsite and I have tickets for sale. The cost $3.75, same as last year, but we have 3 entrees this year: fish, chicken and roast beef. It is great to see how coopera- tive every little center is in taking their turn to chair this rally. As in other years each cen- ter will bring three center- pieces to decorate tables with one of them to be used as a prize. Along with 30 other prizes of money furnished by the county committee. So plan to attend and see what the entertainment will be, eat a hearty meal and enjoy the fellowship of all of Shelby County seniors. HEALTH FAIR APRIL 21-22 Ella Hun&gave the report from the Southwest 8 Senior Services Inc. advisory board meeting. Aletha Nelson re- ported Eleanor Benson's health wouldn't permit her to run for a second term of O.I.L. We learned that April 21 and 22 would be the dates for the Health Fair this year. The senior citizens will fur- nish and fix the lunch for blood profile people and a salad luncheon for all workers at noon on April 22. They will also furnish all the registrars and guides, those days. These will be decided on at our March 24 meeting. I was pleased to see that Nebraska and Iowa's Blue Cross and Blue Shield ranked high in handling Medicare claims. I can vouch for the fact that Arizona must be the slowest one. Iowa ranked 93 and Nebraska 98. Pretty good I would say. NEW HEALTH LAWS During 1988 Congress passed three laws that will be very important in the future. They are the Medicare Castastrophic Coverage Act, Family Support Act and the Fair Housing Amendment Act. All of these have the potential of benefiting low- raceme individuals. The Medicare Castastrophic Act affects both Medicare and Medicaid recipients. It extends coverage to pregnant women and to infants with incomes in the poverty level. It says Medicaid will cover services to handicapped children even if they are receiving educa- tional services. One of the major Medicaid changes concerns nursing home eligibility and spousal improverishment. This refers to situations where a spouse has to enter the nursing home and the other spouse remains in their home and has to pay for nursing care spending all his resources. This Act takes effect Sept. 30, 1989. It allows the spouse at home to retain a larger amount of income after the first month of institutionalization. It also changes resource rules for nursing home residents. They consider all the couple's re- sources and the spouse at home will have a minimum resource allowance of $12,000 The club will meet again in ,or half of their total resources two weeks, up to $60,000.

They really don't benefit the single person as much as the pair. Medicare will pay for 365 days of hospitalization (up from 60). Charges for physi- cians cannot exceed $1,400. Premiums for Medicare will rise and people with taxable income will pay a surcharge up to $800 for 1989. Drug_coverage will be hased in. You pay the first 600. After that Medicare will cover 50% of drugs in 1991. Medicare will pay for 38 days of Home Health care. Medi- care will pay for 150 days in a skilled nursing facility after you pay 20% of the first 8 days of coverage. There will be no limit on hospice care coverage. It is very complicated and impossible for us seniors to even comprehend it's entire implication. However, once you become where you have to use it you'll soon see why the cost is so high. The amount of unnecessary paper work I've received can't help but sky-rocket the cost. I'm still getting two or three let- ters from doctors and insur- ance companies every day. It seems to be a never end- ing procedure. Even when the bill is fully paid several sheets come. I'm not so sure computers are as efficient as people think because those that feed them made many mistakes by pushing the wrong buttons. However, they are the thing at present and we go along with them. Love," was carried out in the decorations. Denise Reinig from Myrtue Memorial Hospital spoke on the importance of exercise. Door prize winners were Nita Larson and Helen Schmitz. A trio composed of Beverly Noelck, Mary Feser and Mary Mathison accompanied by Julie McKeever provided the music.

"o MILK, NOT SODA "Diet soda contains a high concentration of phosphoric acid , which erodes tooth enamel, making teeth more vulnerable to decay", says Norman Sperber, DDS of the California Dental Asso- ciation. "If you want to do your children's teeth some good, offer them milk in- stead of ,soda, says Dr. Sperber.
