c. Rates. The rates of compensation allowed for civilian medical care are
contained in AR 40-330 and DA Circular 40-XX-330. (The "XX" refers to the current FY.)
d. Forms Used. SF 1034 (Public Voucher for Purchases and Services Other
Than Personal) (see fig 2-1) is used to present charges for payment of services by civilian
facilities and care providers authorized in Chapter 17, AR 40-3. It is also used to
reimburse members who have paid for authorized civilian care when the civilian agency
requires immediate payment. When reimbursement is being claimed for payment to more
than one source, a separate voucher is prepared to cover each claim. Although entries on
the SF 1034 are self-explanatory, specific instructions are found in AR 37-107.
e. Supporting Documentation.
(1) Legible copies of invoices support the SF 1034. If an invoice is received
which is other than that produced by printer's type, the initiator of the invoice and the
services provided are verified. When additional copies of invoices are required, they are
(2) SF 1034 for reimbursement to members must be supported by an invoice
as above and a receipt showing payment of the invoice.
(1) It is essential that medical and dental bills from civilian agencies be paid as
soon as practicable after completion of the service. If, for some reason, a
MEDDAC/MEDCEN receives a statement of charges for which it does not have approving
authority, the bill is forwarded to the appropriate MEDDAC/MEDCEN and the civilian
agency is notified of the referral. There is now a 30-day processing time limit for payment
before the Government must pay interest. This must be avoided.
Vouchers are prepared as soon as possible after receipt of the invoice.
Statements and bills from civilian agencies must be fully itemized.
(4) Additional information required of members or civilian agencies is obtained
by telephone, if feasible, and a memorandum record of the call made.
