For this week’s homework, you need to respond to the questions and problems below.
Respond to the following three problems. Show your work for any calculations performed. Each accurate and complete response is worth 20 points.
Problem 1. An HMO has a Point of Service (POS) option for its members, but will pay only 80 percent of approved charges. If a member goes out of network for a medical procedure with a charge of $2,000, of which $1,200 is approved, how much must the member pay?
Problem 2. A hospital has contracted with an HMO to provide acute care inpatient services for $1,000 per day, subject to a 10 percent withhold. The proposed budget for inpatient services is based upon expected utilization of 600 days per 1,000 members at $1,000 per day, or $600,000 per 1,000 members. The hospital risk pool will be split equally between the hospital and a primary care physician group. If only 450 days per 1,000 members were utilized in the first year, how much would the hospital be paid per 1,000 members?
Problem 3. An uninsured patient receives services with charges of $5,000 from a hospital. The hospital staff bills the patient $1,000 and records $4,000 as charity care. If the hospital’s ratio of cost to charges is 50%, what amount would the hospital recognize as charity care in Schedule H of IRS Form 990?
