Incorrect numlist; try instead
forvalues i=1(1)6 {
 forvalues j=`=`i'+1'/7 {
  di `i', `j'
 }
}

but also note that -prtest- is a poor solution for most problems;
svy:tab is better (even for non-survey data--just -svyset, srs- first)
or a -logit- of FLAG_ChoseBestHosp1 on the single dummy variable
defined by BG_Condition_recode==`i'.
