Teater associated press writer Raleigh a people from As far away As Oregon Texas and new York will be pursing their lips to revive an ancient Art this weekend As they compete in the 17th annual National whistlers convention. A i think All Art innately has an audience a said Allen de Hart founder and director of the contest held in the Franklin county town of Louisburg located about 30 Miles North of Raleigh. A i think because its a natural Art a de Hart said. A it was an Means of communication probably Long before we had language. I guess the first Whistler was probably the first Caveman who heard a Bird. A not Only will contestants travel this year from some 20 states including California Washington Oregon Colorado Nevada Alabama Michigan new Hampshire and Florida but More out of state spectators Are expected he said. A we have More people come from new York than any place a de Hart said. A a its a tremendous amount of fun to on saturday the 1989 National grand Champion Whistler Sean Lomax a 28-year-old computer specialist on a submarine based at Pearl Harbor will defend his title. He won last years title by whistling a a dance Bohemer from the opera a Carmen a and a the entertainer a from the movie a the sting Lomax will open this years contest with the National Anthem.

Clinic officials see the attempt to collect payment at the time of the office visit As a Way to keep health care costs Down. A part of our Endeavor is to contain costs by collecting charges for services provided a Bassett said. This helps to Lessen Cost shifting a process where a paying patient or one who has paying insurance benefits ends up paying a part of the uncollected Bills of someone else. The new method of collecting Bills is a stepping Stone toward an even different approach. Currently All patient tickets a cards filled in by the physicians that state what treatment was Given a Are sent to a data processing department for entry into a computer. Under a decentralization plan each physicians office will be equipped with a computer with current patient information in it Bassett said. When a patient Calls for an appointment he will be advised of any delinquent balance on his account. The patient will be told his account must be paid before he can see the doctor. A this will be a much smoother process for everybody a Bassett said. It will eliminate errors because the patient can question any aspect of his Bill. An updated statement of his account will be Given to the patient before he leaves. Bassett admits decentralizing is not beneficial to the clinics but it will give patients an advantage. A it should be a More effective business patient relationship a he said. Decentralization is expected to be in place at the end of 60 Days. Or. Andrew Price president of the medical staff at Wilson memorial Hospital agrees with the policy although he is not affiliated with the clinics. A a contract Between a patient and his doctor is just that. The patient is responsible for his Bill. We require patients to pay something at the time of their visit a he said. This is enforced even if the patient has medical insurance he said. Or. Dennis Kuk a physician at Wilson clinic also supports the new policy. A we Are basically a business that keeps on getting Cut Back More and More through medicaid reimbursements he said. A your expenses keep going up. The clinics did what was reasonable and prudent. A the Boice Willis clinic in Rocky mount with 20 physicians is smaller than the 54-member combined clinics in Wilson. Boice does not have As stringent paying policies As the Csc clinics. A it depends on their insurance and if they be met their deductible a said Pearl Joyner the credit manager. A the patients Are Good about keeping up with it the deductible a a if there is a question we Bill the insurance company and. After that they Are expected to pay in full or make arrangements for payments. Bruce Beasley president of the Wilson county chamber of Commerce said he would ask the health care committee to look at the policy if it has not already. Based on an experience he had at a Charlotte Hospital he did not View the procedure As unusual. A a it a a practice done in other places.
