In an article Aug. 9 about a federal judge's striking down Medicare and Medicaid payments to Christian Science caregivers, the Associated Press erroneously described recipients of such payments as practitioners. Practitioners are leaders in the church who pray for healing. They had not been receiving Medicare or Medicaid payments. Such payments had been going to caregivers and to sanitariums run by the church.
The Sun regrets the error.
