All your un- rried dependent children (and furore additions) een 3 month.,, and under 21 are included, at no extra cost. as long as they live at home. d If you are the only parent living with your chil- n. we suggest the ONE-PARENT FAMILY , LAN. This covers you and all eligible children ving at home between 3 months of age and under 1. Under this plan, of course, furore additions are not included since no maternity benefit is Provided in the ONE-PARENT FAMILY PLAN. If you have no children, or if your children are grown and no longer dependent on you, you will want the HUSBAND-WIFE PLAN. Or, if you are living by yourself, you will want the INDIVIDUAL PLAN. 6. If ! become hospitalized, when do my bene- fits begin? On a/l plans, your cash benefits are paid from the very first day you enter the hospital, for as long --and for as many times-as you are hospitalized, up m the maximum (Aggregate of Benefits) of the plan you choose. 7. How much can I be paid in a Catholic hos- pital? Each plan has its own "Aggregate of Benefits," what we call the maximum. For example, under the ALL-FAMILY PLAN, the maximum is $10,000--$100 a week ($14.28 a day) extra cash income while you are hospital- ized. $75 weekly ($10.71 daily) while your wife is hospitalized. $50 weekly ($7.14 daily) for each eligible child hospitalized. Under the ONE-PARENT FAMILY PLAN, the maximum is $7.500-$100 weekly ($14.28 daily) while you are hospitalized. $50 weekly ($7.14 daily) for each eligible child hospitalized.

Under the INDIVIDUAL PLAN, the maxi. mum is $5,000- $100 a week ($14.28 a day) while you are hospitalized. 8. Must I go to a Catholic hospital to collect benefits? No, you will be covered in any hospital of your choice that makes a charge for room and board, elcept nursing homes, convalescent or self-care units of hospitals, Federal hospitals, or any hospi- tal primarily for the treatment of tuberculosis, drug addiction, alcoholism, or nervous or mental dis- order. 9. When does my policy go into force? It becomes effective the very same day we receive your Enrollment Form. Accidents that occur on or after that date are covered immediately. After your policy is 30 days old, sicknesses which begin there- after are covered. Under the ALL-FAMILY PLAN, childbirth or pregnancy or any consequence there- of is covered after your policy has been in force for 10 months. 10.

When you have claims, benefits are simply subtracted from your "account." 14. Are there any other unusual benefiut? Yes. In the event of an accidental death (within 90 days of an accident) of any person covered, $500 will be paid to the covered person's bene- ficiary (you may name your parish as beneficiary if you wish) subject to the maximum (Aggregate of Benefits) of your policy. 15.
