Abstract : This document presents the development of updated cost models, using FY 1990 data which support OASD(HA) direct care facility resource allocation efforts. The parametric forms of the models presented here are identical to the final models identified in an earlier report, Development of Cost Models to Support Diagnosis Related Management, (VRI-DMIS-2.60 WP91-1(R), Vector Research, Incorporated, 7 November 1991). Comparisons of FY 1990 predicted and observed costs are presented. The stability of the modeling methodology and resulting models is evaluated by comparing FY 1990 model projections to projections obtained using previously developed models.
