Health plan abuse accounts

for $5 million loss in 1980

Abuses to the Panama Canal
Area Benefit Plan, including over-
utilization of the plan and fraudu-
lent claims, were factors resulting in
a loss of more than $5 million to the
health plan in 1980.
As a result of this loss, employees
can expect a substantial increase in
the cost of health insurance pre-
miums in 1982. They can also expect
a tightening of control over claims
and the investigation of irregu-
larities such as have appeared in a
number of cases.
Examples of over-utilization of
the health plan include unwarranted
and unreasonable doctor visits and
prolonged hospital stays. Insurance
officials are investigating hospital
stays of more than six days to curb
the practice of keeping patients
beyond the necessary recovery time.
Continued abuse of the plan could
result in several measures being
taken. One could be the elimination
of the assignment privilege now
granted to some physicians wherein
the plan makes payment directly to
the physician. Should this be
eliminated, the patient would have
to pay the physician for the service
rendered and then be reimbursed by
the insurance plan.
Another alternative could be co-
insurance, which means that the
patient would be responsible for
payment of part of the cost of the
medical service rendered.

Abuse of the plan could also result
in increased outpatient deductibles,
which would mean, for example,
that the patient would be respon-
sible for payment of the first $100 of
outpatient charges before the in-
surance plan would pay for the
A number of fraudulent claims
that have been uncovered by Mutual
of Omaha, the underwriter for the
plan, are currently under investiga-
tion, as well as cases where the plan
is being charged amounts in excess
of the "reasonable and customary"
charges to other patients not cov-
ered by the plan.
Employees who sign or file
fraudulent claims are subject to
disciplinary action. Employees are
warned never to sign a claim form
before receiving the medical service
and never to sign a blank or
incomplete claim form.
Since 1955, the Panama Canal
Area Benefit Plan has provided
health benefits and security to
employees of federal agencies in the
Republic.of Panama at reasonable
rates. Employees should realize that
they are paying for the plan and
abuses only serve to increase pre-
mium rates which are borne by all
employees. With continued un-
favorable claim experience, pre-
mium rates for the plan could
increase to a point where it would be

Caution, Atlantic-area construction ahead

Photo by Kevin Jenkins
A procession of heavy trucks rumbles past a bridge construction crew working to widen the
transisthmian highway near Colon.

Approaching Colon on the Boyd-
Roosevelt transisthmian highway,
one cannot help but notice signs of
change. Panama is investing $130
million in development of Atlantic-
side lands that were turned over to
Panama as a result of the 1979
treaties, and the work on various
projects is under way.
Included in the construction are a
tourist complex in Colon, residen-
tial areas at Fort DeLesseps and

Panama government

offices from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Post offices will continue to be
open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Operating hours adjusted
As a result of recent surveys
conducted by the Panama Area
Exchange, the operating hours of
the Curundu Service Station have
been adjusted as follows:
Monday through
Thursday ..... 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Friday ....... 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday ....... 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday......... 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The new hours of operation will
be effective with the opening of
business on April 27.

Puerto Escondido, a container port,
an industrial park for the Colon
Free Zone and a polytechnic school.
Part of the transisthmian highway is
also being widened to four lanes.
Although the ultimate benefits for
area residents, visitors, businesses
and government will be great, these
results will not be evident until
sometime in the future. In the
meantime, there are more tangible
signs of change that people should
be aware of.
While the development project is
under way, motorists are urged to
obey the new signs which have been
placed along the roads warning
people to exercise caution-"Peli-
gro, Calle Mojada, No Corra"
(Danger, Wet Road, Do Not'
Speed), "No Rebasar" (No Pass-
ing). "Peligro, Disminuya la
Velocidad" (Danger, Slow

Take note

* Because of a steady increase
of criminal activity in the San
Juan Hunt Club/VFW area of
Curundu Road, Protection and
Support Services recommends
that motorists keep their car
doors locked and windows rolled
up while driving through this
area. The Panama National
Guard is intensifying patrols in
an effort to correct the situation.

Down), "Peligro, Entrada y
Salida de Camiones" (Danger,
Truck Entrance and Exit).
The National Guard has es-
timated that approximately 50,000
people are affected daily by the
construction work, including those
living in the Commission townsites
of Coco Solo, France Field and
Margarita, as well as personnel at
Fort Gulick and Fort Davis.
Traffic entering and leaving these
areas and all traffic between Colon
and Panama City is funneled
through the transisthmian highway
and Randolph Road which are also
the major routes for construction
equipment and trucks. The intersec-
tion of these two roads, is par-
ticularly congested, especially with
the additional truck traffic. It is
estimated that a truck enters the
highway every thirty seconds in the
construction area.
Besides heavy and slow-moving
traffic, loose rock and mud on.the
roads are other possible hazards for
which motorist should be prepared,
especially with the arrival of the
rainy season. Also, nighttime drivers
need to be extremely careful since
construction work is continuing
until late in the evenings in an effort
to finish the project as soon as
Tailgating, exceeding posted
.speed limits and disregarding signals
from flagmen and officials all
contribute to a dangerous situation.
Even though the benefits to be
derived from the development pro-
ject are many months in the future,
the time for the public to be
cautious, alert and patient is now.

In a letter expressing his regret at
Mr. Noli's departure, Commission

Administrator and me, with your
ready grasp of the important man-

have been of significant benefit to us

Abusos en plan de salud causan

p6rdida de $5 millones en 1980

Abuses en el Plan de Beneficios de
Indemnizaci6n del Area del Canal
de PanamA, incluyendo el uso
excesivo del plan y reclamos frau-
dulentos, constituyeron los factors
principles en la perdida de mAs de
$5 millones registrada en el Plan de
Salud de 1980.
Como resultado de tal perdida,
los empleados podrAn verse afec-
tados por un aumento sustancial en
el cost de las primas del seguro de
salud para 1982. Tambi6n se prev6
un estricto control sobre los re-
clamos y la investigaci6n de irre-
gularidades como las que han
aparecido en numerosos casos.
Ejemplos del uso excesivo del
Plan de Salud incluyen visits
injustificadas e irrazonables al me-
dico y estadias prolongadas en los
hospitals. Los funcionarios de
seguros estan investigando las es-
tadias en hospitals por mis de seis
dias, a fin de descontinuar la
practice de mantener pacientes
hospitalizados mAs alli del period
necesario de recobro.
El abuso continuado en el plan
podria resultar en la adopci6n de
varias medidas. Una de estas podria
ser la eliminaci6n del privilegio de
asignaci6n otorgado actualmente a
algunos medicos, en el cual el seguro
paga directamente al medico. Si esto
se elimina, el paciente tendria que
pagar al medico por el servicio
prestado y luego ser reembolsado
por el Plan del Seguro.
Otra alternative podria ser el
coaseguro, que harfa al paciente
responsible del pago parcial del
cost del servicio medico prestado.
El abuso del Plan podria resultar

tambien en el aumento del deducible
por visits en los casos de consult
externa, lo cual significaria, por
ejemplo, que el paciente seria
responsible del pago de los primeros
$100 de los gastos incurridos por
consult externa tocAndole al Plan
de Seguro pagar la diferencia sobre
esa suma.
Los numerosos reclamos fraudu-
lentos que han sido descubiertos por
la Mutual of Omaha, la empresa
aseguradora, estan actualmente ba-
jo investigaci6n, asi como los casos
en donde se est6n cobrando sumas
excesivas sobre los cargos "razona-
bles acostumbrados" que se cobran
a otros pacientes no cubiertos por el
Los empleados que firmen o
sometan reclamos fraudulentos es-
taran sujetos a acci6n disciplinaria.
Se advierte a los pacientes que no
firmen un formulario de reclamo
antes de recibir el servicio medico y
nunca firmar un formulario de
reclamo en blanco o incomplete.
Desde 1955, el Plan de Beneficios
del Area del Canal de Panama ha
venido ofreciendo beneficios de
salud y seguridad a los empleados de
las agencies federales en la Repi-
blica de Panama a tarifas razo-
nables. Los empleados deben tomar
en cuenta que estan pagando por el
Plan y que los abuses s6lo sirven
para incrementar las primas que son
pagadas por todos los empleados.
De continuar esta desfavorable
experiencia en reclamos, las primas
del Plan deberan aumentarse hasta
un nivel en que habria que descon-
