Abstract:

This report presents the estimation of case total limits for catastrophic reinsurance payments to be made to all thirty-seven Army Gateway catchment areas for Fiscal Year FY 1994. Case totals include both institutional and professional services CHAMPUS payments. FY 1993 data were used to derive the estimates.
