ANDERSON Canadian Press Staff Writer So you're leaving the coun- try for a while. You're wondering in the event of an accident or unexpected your pro- vincial medical and hospital insurance coverage will look after the bills. Sure. But not necessarily all of them. And don't stay out of the country longer than 12 months. Make sure your premiums are paid up before you go and Canada will look after you all the way. almost all the way. You can't the at one of those ultra-ex- pensive medical resorts that are the next thing to a holiday spa and expect your pro- vincial medical-care plan to pick up the tab. If you avoid a high-price specialist. And try not to get hit by a truck in Los Angeles or be taken ill in Hawaii. In those places hospitals and doctors come rich for the going rate in any provincial plan. You won't get all your money back. HOME RATES PREVAIL A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows that all provinces continue medical and hospital cov- erage for residents in good standing when they venture abroad. Regulations vary from province to province but in insurees are well looked after. There's no extra premium for such coverage. With minor variations in some all provinces pay the rates paid at home. Most medical practitioners and hospitals in foreign coun- tries call for cash on the line in treating tourists. Pay the bill and be reimbursed when you get back. A tip from the department of external In the event of an emergency such as get in touch with the nearest Canadian embassy or maintain lists of local doctors who can be recommended. As in other cov- erage under British Colum- bia's medical and hospital plans continues for 12 months when a resident is out of the province with payments at the B.C. rate. Anything over that is the insuree's respon- sibility. Coverage for possible extra charges is provided by pri- vate companies. The charge is and benefits include payment up to for ex- penses not covered under the provincial plan. IWAIT In payments abroad are the same as those at home and a spokesman for the Alberta Medical Associ- ation said works in most The exceptions are the rub. The spokesman run into problems in some areas of the United States where health costs are astronomical. Mayo coverage under the Alberta fee schedule cov- ers only about 30 per cent of the cost. Angeles also is out of this world and Hawaii is real- ly Saskatchewan doesn't mind if a resident elects to go into a foreign hospital for treat- ment that could be handled at home. It will pay only a for the same length of time it specifics in cases of emergency 90 days. In it pays a day for the first 40 days and for the next 50. You're on your own after that. Manitoba pays the home rate for medical costs abroad. For payment is the greater of 75 per cent of the hospital's charges for services insured in or a daily allowance approved by the provincial commission. If a Manitoban travels in payment is on the scale applying in the province concerned. ONTARIO WARY Ontario pays abroad what it pays at home except for elec- tive hospital admissions. In such cases it pays only 75 per cent of the charges. For coverage is the full cost of standard ward care and 90 per cent of medical determined by the fee schedule of the On- tario Medical Association. Ontario officials say that is more than enough to look after the ordinary doctor's bill everywhere except in the United States where in many places doctors routinely charge more than they do in Canada. Quebecers travelling abroad are covered as fully as they would be at Que- bec's rate of payment. That also is the case in New Brunswick which pays up to a day for hospital care. Prince Edward Island is more generous. It pays up to a day for hospital care and medical fees on the scale. Nova Scotia is better. It al- lows a day for hospital care plus 75 per cent of the balance. The Newfoundland Medical Care Commission pays health costs of a Newfoundlander travelling abroad at a rate equal to the highest rate in Canada. A commission spokesman said this would be equal to Ontario's rates. In medical- care premiums are paid by the provincial government. Ann i Landers Dear Aon I am a age 55. My father in law is in very poor health and the doctors say it is just a matter of days. as we call told me three years ago at his son's funeral that I wouls share his estate equally with his two daughters. I have always loved helped him with his letter writing and driven him wherever he wanted to and he was at my dinner table almost every night. He frequently told me his daughters are fine girls but their husbands had made it clear that they didn't want old man around too Yesterday one of the girls said something about old being out of his mind and that he mumbled some nonsense about his estate be- ing divided three ways. She told won't hold up in court so don't count on I am not hard up for but neither are they.

What do you Still Reeling Dear The poor fellow isn't even dead yet and his daughters are already counting his money. My ad- vice Say nothing. Do nothing. Sign nothing. Consult' a lawyer if you run into trou- ble at probate time. Dear Ann My hus- band and I both grew up reading your column. We used to laugh about it but 15 years here we are on your It seems in- credible. Rob and I have been married for eight years. Our children are seven and five. The only real problem we I have is our parents his and mine. They have nothing in common. Whenever we are I together I get a headache and Rob gets indigestion. parents are college affluent and sophisticated. Mine are hard- honest and plain. Their politics are poles apart. Although they have never had a serious the ten- sion is so thick you can cut it with a knife. The solution seems obvious. Keep them apart. I wish it were that easy. My parents never come over but Rob's do. Twice this last month Rob's parents dropped in when my folks were here and it was awful. What's the Beached Dear Somebody must explain to Rob's parents that in the interest of family har- mony they must call before This is your husband's job and I hope he is up to it. 'Common teenage problems handled ineptly by doctors9 OTTAWA The mosi common medical problem facing adolescent failure to begin menstruation at the expected time and irregular generally are ineptly handled by says a Toronto doctor and medical pro- fessor. This is because neither graduate training in gynecology nor general prac- tice training expose physicians to who are physiologically and biologically different from said Dr. Carol Ann Cowell in an interview in The Medical Post. Physicians have a natural reluctance to deal with adoles- cents and find it difficult to communicate with them said Dr. associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at University of Toronto and a staff physician at the Hospital For Sick Children. Growth and development of sexual maturity is not part of the medical school curriculum. If a girl is severely upset be- cause she has not begun her menstrual periods while her peers the flow of blood from the genital tract may be induced by estrogen hormone said Dr. Cowell. This would demonstrate to the patient everything is there but that the computer just hasn't switched on More important than this was reassurance by doctors that some women are late maturers and an explanation from them of the process of puberty. Menstruation usually begins at 12.8 but the range in the normal popula- tion is 10 to 16.5 years. Menstrual irregularities in adolescence have to be watch- ed said Dr. Cowell. Irregularities might indicate a poor reproductive perfor- mance later in life. Intervals initially four to six weeks long were not unusual. But girls who menstruated er- a four- week sometimes eight be ex- amined by a specialist.
