Health Care Services Reimbursement
Assignment Foundation

Pearland Medical Center owns a small satellite clinic, specializing in General Practice, located at nearby Pearland airport. General Practice Clinic’s sole payor is Air Health, a health care plan that covers the airport employee population. Air Health has been paying on a fee-for-service basis; however, recently, its covered population increased and it proposed a capitation contract for the next year with an annual capitation payment of $150 for each of its 20,000 covered members.

Previous experience indicates that the covered population will average 2 visits per year to General Practice Clinic. General Practice Clinic generates annually $1,150,000 fixed cost, which includes $550,000 in direct cost and $600,000 in allocated overhead. Each visit to General Practice Clinic generates $45 in variable costs.

Construct the base pro-forma profit and loss statement on the capitation contract based on the number of members for the clinic.
What is clinic’s breakeven point under this capitation contract in the number of members?
Should the clinic accept the contract terms?

Create an Annotated Bibliography using three of the readings and/or video assigned for Module 3.

Below is a sample of an Annotated Bibliography entry for one source. The entry includes the source (in APA Style) followed by two paragraphs: 1) a summary of the source and 2) a reflection on how the source will be used in one's own research
Annotated Bibliography

Stanhope, H. (2010, August 11). How low can you go: living on minimum-wage in America. American Living, 1, 63+.

This article explains the author's experiential research in which she attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum wage in America. After shadowing a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Walmart sales employee for six months, Stanhope summarizes her experiences and reflects on her findings, including the individuals' relationships with fellow workers and their financial struggles.

While my paper addresses single parenting, Stanhope's article is especially effective in the portion of my essay that addresses employment. One of my supporting points addresses the difficulty single parents’ face as they attempt to balance rearing a family while providing financially. Specific quotes from the workers who were shadowed will provide support for my points through real life examples. Further, Stanhope provides scholarly research on the economy and the rising cost of living in America today, which also lends support and credibility to my thesis.
