1. The commissioner shall establish the rates to be paid for the
maintenance, care and treatment of all patients admitted to the Helen
Hayes Hospital.

2. The commissioner shall require that the director of the hospital
shall render bills at suitable intervals and a final bill as soon as
practicable on discharge of a patient, to the person or agency in each
instance who guarantees payment or, if payment is to be made from public
funds, to the proper fiscal officer of the agency or county or
municipality indicated.

3. The commissioner may in his discretion, in proper cases, where
substantial justice will best be served thereby, waive such bills or
compromise any portion of such bills for the maintenance, care and
treatment received or furnished to patients in the hospital. Such waiver

and the attorney general when they deem it to be for the best interest
of the state.
