Abstract : This report presents in Appendix A the CHAMPUS Catastrophic Quarterly Payment Reports for the Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year (FY) 1996 for thirty-four of the Army TRICARE catchment areas. Each Payment Report lists Privacy Act protected hospitalization patient cases having CHAMPUS claims totaling more than the catchment area's specific PY 1996 catastrophic cutoff amount either at the end of the reported quarter or the prior quarter. The difference between the current and previous 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 Fourth Quarter FY 1996 payment differences, the net claim totals for each of the two quarters, and the payment total between the quarters.
