HERAIB Bill provides waiver of premiums in health care hardship cases EDMONTON (CPi Amend- ments lo the Health Insurance 'remiums Act which would )rovide for waiver of premium n cases of extreme hardship were introduced in the Alberta egislature. Helen Hunley, minister with- out portfolio responsible for the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission, said the waiver would be available only on spe- cial recommendation from the department of health and social development. The proposed amendments would clarify the exemption from premiums of Albertans aged 65 and over and their de- pendents, which took effect last Jan. 1. Miss Hunley said the amend- ments would also improve the commission's collection proce- dures and its business proce- dures with regard to inspec- :ion of records.

And now government i and the public arc aware of this." COLLEGE SWAMPED The Toronto resident said In an interview that another sign of the interest in his profession is the number of applicants trying to get into Ihe Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. "We built a new college about four years ago. twice as large as before, thinking it would be adequate for years and already we're swamped.' The college offers a four- year course. Dr. Sutherland was attending the Alberta Chiropractic Asso- ciation annual convention in this national park community. Dr. Lloyd MacDougall of To- ronto said in an interview ad- ministration has "mushroom- ed'' in recent years as chiro- practors become part of the provincial health care pro- grams.

The head of a family with no taxable income would pay a subsidized pre- mium of a year rather than the regular family rate of Welfare recipients do not pay premiums. Miss Hunley said a person seeking a waiver of premiums during a period of financial hardship would apply to the commission, which would refer it to the department of health and social development for evaluation. The waiver period would be no longer than six months, allhough a person could apply for an extension.
