Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 59238 [2010-24090]

Download as PDF 59238 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 186 / Monday, September 27, 2010 / Notices Duty members and Active Duty dependents enrolled in TRICARE Prime pay no co-payments for inpatient or outpatient health care services. DoD may establish special co-pay rules for the FHCC under demonstration project authority of 10 U.S.C. 1092 for other beneficiaries.’’ Under this demonstration, co-pays will be waived for any eligible DoD beneficiary seeking healthcare at the FHCC. The waiver of cost sharing applies to all impatient, outpatient, and ancillary services and all outpatient prescription drugs provided at the FHCC. The waiver is consistent with current policies and procedures followed at all MTFs. According to an Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE), it is estimated that waiving the co-pays for all beneficiaries including Medicareeligible beneficiaries will cost DoD an additional $101,518 a year. This cost assumes that the lack of co-pays would lead to a 20 percent increase in utilization by the affected groups (i.e. induced demand) at this facility. Without this assumption, the waiver would cost DoD an additional $84,599 annually. The cost of additional staffing required to compute and collect copayments could easily be more than $100,000 per year. The effectiveness of this demonstration will be tested by comparing the volume of care for beneficiaries that would have paid copayments to the prior year volume to determine if increased utilization actually occurred as a result of the elimination of co-payments. Increased utilization would be an indicator of what to expect in future DoD/VA mergers of this nature and would influence decisions regarding financial integration. The final report on this demonstration will accompany the final report on the FHCC demonstration required by Section 1701, NDAA 2010. Dated: September 20, 2010. Patricia L. Toppings, OSD Federal Register Liaison Officer, Department of Defense.
