Abstract : This report presents detailed cost data for each of fourteen categories of Outpatient Non-availability Statement (ONAS) CPT-4 procedures, grouped by inpatient and ambulatory professional services, performed within assigned and unassigned Army billable medical treatment facility catchment areas during the First Quarter Fiscal Year (FY) 1993. Fourth Quarter FY 1992 data is also presented along with comparisons between the two quarters. Appendix A (pp. A-1-71) summarizes by category of ONAS procedures and catchment area, the First Quarter costs for amounts billed by the provider for ONAS services (ABS), amounts allowed for the services by the fiscal intermediary (AAS), payments made by the patient and other sources (TPP), total government payments for the services (TGP), percentages of TGP to ABS and to AAS, and of TPP to TGP. Appendix B (pp. B-1-73) correspondingly shows the number of services and patient episodes, and averages of ABS, AAS, and TGP by service and by episode. Each appendix also contains a summary combining data for all areas (pp. A-72-73, B- 72-73). Appendices C and D each comprise similar data for the Fourth Quarter FY 1992 period, and Appendix E compares each catchment area's impatient, ambulatory, and total ONAS professional services totals over the two quarters (pp. E-1-39), and provides a summary over all catchment areas (E-40)....
