l Winthrop News Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2003 Health Insurance Counseling Program Beginning September 1, Medicare will limit the annual amount of pay- ment for out patient therapy received in private settings. The limits are $1,590 for Physical Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology combined and another $1,590 for Occupational Therapy. These caps will apply to the full approved amount of the therapy ser- vices, not the amount which Medicare actually pays. The Medicare recipient receiving the services will still be responsible for the $100.00 per year Part B deductible and the 20 percent co- pay. Costs for therapy services received before September 1 will not be counted toward the $1,590 limit this year. However, beginning January 1, 2004, the limit will apply for the entire year. The therapy limits will apply to therapy received at private practice clinics, outpatient rehabilitation facili- ties not onnected to a hospital, skilled nursing facilities for outpatients or facility residents who are not in Medicare-covered stays and at home for beneficiaries who are not receiving Medicare-covered home health care. es in The new limits generally do not Health Insurance Program, through apply to the therapy received at hospi- the Senior Linkage LineR at 800-333- tal outpatient departments.

From the same mouth come blessing and cursing (James 3:8-10). How many times have we heard this and similar passages warning us of the dangers of careless speech? How many times have we vowed to be more careful about what we say, perhaps after hurting someone with an unkind word or after embarrassing ourselves? By our speech we manifest who we are, telling others of our greed, our lust, our pride and our cov- etousness, or perhaps of our humility, chastity and obedience. How many times a day do we talk uncharitably about others? Speech is action, and it is through our actions that we should be a light to the world. This doesn't mean we should tell others of our great virtues; that would be spiritual pride. And while our tongue should reflect our true person, we need not boast of our virtues any more than we should boast of our vices. Before we speak, we should ask ourselves if what we are about to say is true, if it is necessary, and if it is helpful or edifying. The ancient Greek philosopher Zeno wisely quipped that we have two ears and only one mouth, and thus we would do well to listen more and speak less. "Hear and understand: not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes out of his mouth, this defiles a man." R.S.V.
