Abstract : This report presents in Appendix A the CHAMPUS Catastrophic Quarterly Payment Reports for the First Quarter Fiscal Year (FY) 1993 for each of the thirty-eight Army Gateway catchment areas. Each Payment Report lists Privacy Act protected hospitalization patient cases having CHAMPUS claims totaling more than the catchment area's specific FY 1993 catastrophic cutoff amount at the end of the Fourth Quarter FY 1992 and/or at the end of the First Quarter FY 1993. The difference between the reported and prior quarters' net claim payments equals the catastrophic net payment made for each patient during the quarter. Table 1 at the end of the Summary contains the CHAMPUS Catastrophic Quarterly Payment Schedule, summarizing for each catchment area the catastrophic case cutoff limit, the total net claim payments for each of the two quarters, the payment total between the quarters, and the number of catastrophic cases comprising these First Quarter FY 1993 payment differences....
