1 In some instances, figures are presented where no federally aided vendor payments are made; in others, no figures are presented where vendor payment programs are now in existence. These discrepancies are generally the result of the method and of the timing of the State reports. For example, Alabama, although it has no federally approved plan for vendor method payment, reports total payments of $17,473. This amount, however,

represents payments from local funds only. New York, which has a vendor program for all types of services, reported its payments for practitioners' services and drugs and supplies under the heading designated “Other." Another example is the fact that no hospitalization payments are listed for Florida, because the program did not go into effect until October 1959.
