See details at right) REGARDLESS OF YOUR AGE OR THE SIZE OF YOUR FAMILY YOU CAN ENROLL FOR ONLY $1.00 Now, during this Limited Enroll- ment Period, you can enroll yourself and all eligible members of your family with no red tape and without any qualifications whatsoever-'-b' you must mail your Enrollment Form no later than Midnight, No- vember 23, 1969! his could well be the most important news you've heard in years! Now you may enjoy a special low-cost health protec- tion plan that pays "extra cash" direct to you when unexpected sickness or accident hospitalizes you or a member of your family! Mutual Protective Insurance Company, specializing in health insurance for Cath- olics for over 35 years, has created a brand- new health plan especially for Catholics like yourself-the HOSPITAL PLAN FOR CATHOLICS. "Try" This Plan For Only $1 You can actually "try" the plan under a special no strings "introductory" offer: For only $1.00, you can enroll yourself and all eligible members of your family- without having to see a company represen- tative and without any red tape whatsoever --during this limited enrollment period. And, after you receive your policy, iJ [or any reason you decide you don't want it, you may return it within 10 days and your dollar will be promptly re/unded.t Why You Need The Hospital Plan For Catholics In Addition To Ordinary Health Insurance Because no matter what other insurance you now carry, it simply won't cover every- thing! Think for a moment--in these days of rising medical costs, would your present insurance cover all your hospital bills? All your surgical and in-hospital doctor's bills? All the medicines, drugs, supplies and the many other extras? Probably not. And even if a/l your medical and hospi- tal bills were covered, what about all your other expenses--the bills that keep piling up at home-the tremendous and costly up- set to your budget, your reserves and your family life? !/you, as husband,/ather and breadwin- ner are suddenly hospitalized, your income stops, your expenses go up. Even if you have some kind of "salary insurance" it probably won't come close to replacing your full-time pay. !/your wife is suddenly hospitalized, who will look after the fam- ily, do the laundry, the marketing, the cleaning? You may have to take time off from your job-or hire domestic help. /f one o/your children is hospitalized, you'll certainly spare no expense. !/you're a sen- ior citizen, with limited reserves, and are hospitalized, even with Medicare, where will the "extra" money you need come from? Without any extra cash protection in case of a hospital emergency, debts may be incurred, savings may be lost, peace of mind may be shattered-and even recovery can be seriously delayed. How The Plan Protects You And Your Family Now, with the unique protection of the Hospital Plan for Catholics you can avoid these worries-because you can be assured of extra cash income when you or any cov- ered family member goes to the hospital- to help keep you out of debt, to help keep your savings intact, to speed recovery by easing your worried mind! No matter how large your family, no matter what your age or occupation and without any other qual- ifications whatsoever, you can choose any of the/our low-cost plans shown at right. In addition to the important cash bene- fits, you get all these valuable "extra" features: Your "Health-Bank Account" Here's a wonderful benefit, no matter which plan you choose, almost like an ex- tra "Bank Account." When your policy is issued, your insurance provides up to $10,000, $7,500 or $5,000-according to the Plan you choose. This is your "Health- Bank Account." Then, every month your policy is in force, an amount equal to your regular monthly premium (including your first month) is actually added to your max- imum! When you have claims, your bene- fits are simply subtracted from your "ae- (Continued on next page) CHOOSE THE PLAN THAT SUITS YOU BEST / ALL-FAMILY PLAN $10,000 MAXIMUM PAYS YOU: $100 weekly ($14.28 daily) extra cash income while you are hos- pitalized. $75 weekly ($10.71 daily) while your wife is hospitalized. $50 weekly ($7.14 daily) for each eligible child hospitalized. if yours is a young growing family, we rec- ommend the All-Family Plan.
