This thesis presents an analysis of the Third Party Collection Program (TPC) for inpatient and outpatient care at Naval Hospital Oakland (NHO), its implementation and its comparison with a civilian counterpart. The implementation is in accordance with DoD Instruction 6010.15 and the comparison is conducted with the Community Hospital of Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP). This thesis briefly introduces the reader to the hospital TPC program, the concept, the Law, and the program implementation responsibilities. IT gives a brief explanation of the DoD Inspector General TPC program inspection of August 1990, conducted at twenty-five different military hospitals nationwide. Also, it provides historical data and health services information of NHO and CHOMP. Third party potential collections data are broken down by individual services (Army, Air Force and Navy) from 1988 to 1994. The author concluded that NHO has established an effective TPC program in accordance with DoD Instruction 6010.15 but that the billing and collection process is not as efficient and effective as CHOMP. The outpatient TPC program is still in its developing stage, and NHO is working hard to have an effective and efficient program.
