What are the expected rates of reimbursement for this time frame for each payer?
Healthcare Finance: HLTH420 – 1304A 01
Unit3 – Individual Project
Your facility has the following payer mix:
40% commercial insurances = 800
25% Medicare insurance = 500
15% Medicaid insurance = 300
15% liability insurance = 300
5% all others including self-pay = 100
Assume that for the time in question you have 2000 cases in the proportions above. (what are the proportions of the total cases for each payer?)
(Calculated above )
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?)
Calculating Individual Reimbursement Rates for the 5 Payers (Commercial Medicare Medicaid Liability Self pay / Other
Medicare Rate (Baseline) $6200
Commercial Insurance 110%
Medicaid 65% of Medicare
Liability Insurers 200% of Medicare
Others Average 100% of Medicare Rates
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.
