Abstract : This report presents in Appendix A the CHAMPUS Catastrophic Quarterly Payment Reports for the First Quarter Fiscal Year (FY) 1995 for thirty-seven of the 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 1995 catastrophic cutoff amount either at the end of the Fourth Quarter FY 1994 and/or at the end of the First Quarter FY 1995. The difference between the reported and prior quarter's 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 number of catastrophic cases comprising these First Quarter FY 1995 payment differences, the net claim totals for each of the two quarters, and the payment total between the quarters.
