A DIFFICULTY MET. -v- INSURANCE COMMISSIONERS AND ftrtPOftABY KteiDtNTS. One of the problems which has occa- sioned much trouble to the National Health Insurance Oummissioneris is that relating to insured persons, who, by nature of their employment, are com- pelled to travel from town to town. The panel system did not make allowance for these peopleâwho are estimated to number about 500,000, and include mem- bers of the theatrical profession, per- manent railway men, navvies, commer- ciel travellers, and othersâthey were, as a result debarred from the privilege of medical attendance unless they were able to return home whenever illness overtook them. Under the new scheme, however, this has been obviated. These insured per- sons will henceforth be known as "Temporary Residents," and will re- fromo'-ira a special book of vouchers. If incapacitated by illness when away from home, a "temporary resident" can call in any of the panel doctors in the town at which they chance to be and receive treatment on presentation of a voucher. The difficulty of paying the doctors will be met by providing a special fund out of the funds set aside originally for medical benefit. The method of distri- buting the fund will be similar to that adopted in areas where payment by at- tendance is in vef,ne.
