INSTRUCTIONS
Chapters 2–3
1. A hospital submitting an outpatient claim would use a UB-04 claim form. What source of
coding information is used to report diagnosis codes? What source of coding information
is used to report procedures?
2. What are the primary uses of financial information?
3. Is profit maximization the same thing as shareholder wealth maximization?
4. What are the objectives of not-for-profit (NFP) firms?
5. What are social responsibility and ethics as they relate to business-oriented
organizations? How should social responsibility and ethics affect the decisions of even
for-profit companies?
6. What is the main difference between the fee-for-service and capitation reimbursement
methods?
7. For the following problems (as applicable), assume that the Medicare/patient split of
payments is as covered in the book. Assume that the participating/non-participating and
maximum allowable charge are as covered in the book. Ignore the patient’s annual
deductible. Use the following information to answer the question. Dr. Melissa Rose is
trying to decide whether to be a Medicare-participating physician for the upcoming year.
(Assume that her entire practice consists of Medicare patients or at least that her practice
has slack capacity. Her Medicare patients do not displace non-Medicare patients.)
Assume that her average charge is $120 (before Medicare’s limiting charge is applied),
for which the average Medicare-approved amount is $100. If she decides to be a non-
participating physician, she expects to accept assignment 80% of the time. For the
unassigned patients, assume that she would set her charges at 110% of the Medicare-
approved fee for a nonparticipating physician. Assume that her Medicare patient volume
is not reduced if she chooses not to participate nor if she does not accept assignment.
(Ignore bad debt and any other factors not presented here.)
Case Study: What will be Dr. Rose’s average reimbursement per visit if she chooses to
be a Medicare-participating physician? (This is the total from both Medicare and the
patients.)
8. For the following problems (as applicable), assume that the Medicare/patient split of
payments is as covered in the book. Assume that the participating/non-participating and
maximum allowable charge are as covered in the book. Ignore the patient’s annual
deductible. Use the following information to answer the question. Dr. Melissa Rose is
trying to decide whether to be a Medicare-participating physician for the upcoming year.
(Assume that her entire practice consists of Medicare patients or at least that her practice
has slack capacity. Her Medicare patients do not displace non-Medicare patients.)
Assume that her average charge is $120 (before Medicare’s limiting charge is applied),
for which the average Medicare-approved amount is $100. If she decides to be a non-
participating physician, she expects to accept assignment 80% of the time. For the

unassigned patients assume that she would set her charges at 110% of the Medicare-
approved fee for a nonparticipating physician. Assume that her Medicare patient volume
is not reduced if she chooses not to participate nor if she does not accept assignment.
(Ignore bad debt and any other factors not presented here.)
Case Study: Based strictly on the information presented here (ignore bad debt, patient
mix differences, and other considerations not presented here), should she choose to be
participating or non-participating if she wishes to maximize her total reimbursement for
services?
9. A non-participating physician provides services to a Medicare patient who has total
charges of $100 (before Medicare’s limiting charge is applied). The physician does not
accept assignment, charges the maximum allowable, and submits the claim to Medicare.
Assume Medicare’s approved schedule for these services is $80. What is the Medicare
portion of the physician payment (which Medicare sends to the patient)? What is the
patient’s portion of the payment to the physician (net of the reimbursement from
Medicare)?
