(What are the proportions of the total cases for each payer?) The average Medicare rate for each case is \$6200- use this as the baseline. Commercial insurances average 110% of Medicare, Medicaid averages 65% of Medicare, Liability insurers average 200% of Medicare and the others average 100% of Medicare rates. (What are the individual reimbursement rates for all 5 payers?) 1. What are the expected rates of reimbursement for this time frame for each payer? What is your expected A/R? 2. What rate should you charge for these services (assuming one charge rate for all payers)? (This gives you your total A/R.) Calculate the total charges for all cases based on this rate. 3. What is the difference between the two A/R rates above? Can you collect it from the patient? What happens to the difference? 4. Which of these costs are fixed? Which are variable? Direct or indirect? materials/supplies (gowns, drapes, bedsheets) Wages (nurses, technicians) Utility, building, usage exp (lights, heat, technology) Medications Licensing of facility Per diem staff Insurances (malpractice, business etc.) 5.

Insurances (malpractice, business etc.): \$175 6. Using the above information, determine which is fixed and which cost is variable. Then calculate the breakeven volume of cases in units for this period. 7. Suppose you want to make \$150,000 profit between this period and next period to fund an expansion to the NICU, how many cases would you have to see? At what payer mix would this be optimal? Your assignment will be graded in accord
