f W DES MOINES will be no more free or cutrate serv ice for state officials at Univer sity Hospitals in Iowa City if Gov Harold Hughes recommendations are followed Hughes in a letter to Board of Regents Secretary David Dancer Monday said he had found no abuse of the discount policy but recommended that it be discontinued except where it applies to students faculty and staff members There were

Virgil Hancher to report on the pricing policy toward persons whose particular area of service or support to University Hospitals indicates the desirability of this discount In the letter to Dancer Hughes said he was satisfied after hav ing read reports concerning the implementation of this policy that it has not been willfully abused by the parties concerned The letter continued There would seem to be little question as to the advisability or propriety of the present policy of medical and hospital benefits at University Hospitals for persons directly connected with the uni versity I do feel however that other elected and ap pointed state the means with which to pay for their hospital care at University Hospitals should do so A report to the governor from hospital officials showed that 22 elected and appointed state offi cials received hospital services in the period from Feb 24 1962 to April 5 1963 The total cost of these services was and dis counts amounted to A statement by hospital officials in the report said the policy re flects the genuine respect which we in democratic countries hold for the men and women whom we have chosen to serve us and it further reflects the very real need which our own and other hospitals have for informed understanding by the laymen who actually deter mine the level of hospital services through the policies and budget which they develop and support Hancher in a letter explained the discretionary discounts apply only to hospital services and not to doctor bills He said clinicians at University Hospitals may re ceive fees up to a ceiling percen tage of their salaries and the phy sician himself decides whether or how much to charge V
