Stat. 1981, ch. 73, par. 918) may not be interpreted so as to allow an accident and health certificate to require that the insured must first seek the services of a Society's hospital before benefits of a certificate will be paid for expenses incurred and services rendered.
c) Societies issuing accident and health certificates under the authority of Section 288 of the Code are not qualified to issue the types of accident and health certificates authorized by Section 367 of the Code (Ill. Rev.

Eligible members of a family include a husband, a wife, dependent children or any children under a specified age which may not exceed 19 years, and any other person dependent upon the certificateholder.
