Lattner ~aid "there is no imen- tion in the proposal that there be ,rely one national Blue Cross plan, but rather all plans cooperating in one national program. It is not proposed either to dis- associate from the American Hos- pital Assn but to strengthen that important relationship at the policy level." Lattner said. "it is hoped that a single national voice for Blue Cross will facilitate the educational pro- eess by which Blue Cross and the public influence each other. The ~trengthened partnership could pro- duce a feasible formula for hos- pital reimbursement that would be accepted nation-wide by the hos- pitals, by Blue Cross and by the public." Ronald A. Jydstrup, director of North Dakota Blue Cross. said that the proposed consolidation of the ~wo national organizations would be presented at the annual confer- ence of Blue Cross plans to be held m Los Angeles, April 3-7 and that Blue Cross plans in District X spear- headed the proposed reorganization.

"Most Blue Cross a c t i v ~ t i e s are not national," Jydstrup added. "but must tie in closely with the needs of each local community.
