Abstract : This report presents detailed cost data for each of fourteen categories of Outpatient Nonavailability 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 Third Quarter Fiscal Year (FY) 1993. Ambulatory services also list separately the OCHAMPUS-assigned procedures associated with each category's facility-related charges. Appendix A (pp. A-1-120) summarizes by category of ONAS procedures and catchment area, the Third 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-1-120) correspondingly shows the number of services and patient episodes, and averages of ABS, AAS, and TGP by service and by episode. Each of these appendices contains a summary combining data for all areas (pp. A-121-124, B-121-124). Appendices C and D (pp. C-1-13, D-1-13) retabulate Second Quarter data for the unassigned area and eleven catchment areas having facility-related charges erroneously included in the ambulatory 72 Strabismus Repair category. Appendix E (pp. E-1-38) compares the unassigned and all catchment areas' inpatient, ambulatory, and total ONAS professional services totals over the Second and Third Quarters, and provides a summary over all areas.
