Abstract : This report presents, for each of three CPT-4 mammography procedures grouped by inpatient and ambulatory professional services performed within Army billable medical treatment facility catchment areas during Fiscal Year (FY) 1991, the totals of government payments (TGP), amounts allowed (AAS) and billed (ABS) for the same services, number of services and corresponding number of patient episodes, percentages of TGP to AAS and to ABS, and averages of all dollar amounts, by service and by episode. TGP for all mammography procedures in all catchment areas for FY 1991 was $1.3 million while AAS and ABS for the identical services were $2.5 and $2.7 million respectively. Appendix A summarizes each mammography procedure's TGP, AAS, ABS, and the percents of TGP to AAS and to ABS. Appendix B shows the number of services and episodes, and the averages of TGP, AAS and ABS per service and per episode. Both sets of tables are computed by billable medical treatment facility catchment area and as a total of all catchment areas.
