uniformed service medical treatment facilities. The appropriate Surgeon General of the
uniformed service concerned is included as an information addressee on the message
notifying the receiving facility of the patient's transfer.
(13) Supplemental medical information. If the alphabetical and numerical codes
used to medically classify patients are not sufficient to regulate them to the proper medical
treatment facility, supplemental information should be included. An example would be the
requirements for the services of a proctologist, psychiatrist, podiatrist, and so forth; or the
need for special procedures such as renal biopsy. Likewise, in those cases where
patients are identified as potential teaching cases, reference should be made to such,
including information as to the desired medical treatment facility and whether the patient
has been accepted by the desired facility. Additional medical information is required in
cases where a specific facility is desired. In cases where patients have been scheduled
for performance of operations and nonsurgical procedures, include the name of the
medical treatment facility, the required procedures, and the date scheduled. The
supplemental medical information will follow the data pertaining to the duty station or place
