9 ASU 2014-09: Revenue Recognition Objective: single, principle-based revenue standardImprove accounting for contracts with customersMore robust framework for recognizing revenueIncreased comparability across industries and capital marketsBetter disclosuresSubstantially converged with IFRS on major provisions
10 ASU : SummaryFASB created a new Topic 606 that will replace Topic 605 when this standard is adoptedASU will supersede most industry-specific guidanceCore principle is to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or servicesGuidance specifies the accounting for an individual contract with a customer; however, as a practical expedient, an entity may apply guidance to a portfolio of contracts (or performance obligations) with similar characteristics if the entity reasonably expects that the effects on the financial statements would not differ materially from applying guidance to individual contracts
11 Scope All contracts with customers, except Lease contractsInsurance contractsFinancial instrumentsGuaranteesNon-monetary exchanges between entities in the same line of business to facilitate sales to customersAlso excluded: contributions, collaborative arrangementsSales/Transfers of nonfinancial assets outside of the entity’s ordinary activities (Subtopic )Recognition and measurement guidance
12 Five steps to apply standard Recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitledIdentify the contract(s) with a customerIdentify the performance obligations in the contractDetermine the transaction priceAllocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contractRecognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation12345
13 Effective DatePublic business entities and certain not-for-profit entities including conduit bond obligorsFiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2016 (no early adoption)All other entitiesFiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, interim periods in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 (can adopt at same time as public business entities)

15 ASU 2014-09: Implementation FASB: Joint Transition Resource Group Significant effort likely to be expended as the U.S. moves from the current industry-specific guidance to this new, broader, principles-based approachFASB: Joint Transition Resource GroupTo identify and discuss broader issues, including those that may warrant follow-up standard-setting activity by the FASBSimilar to what we’ve done in the past following issuance of FAS 157 (Valuation Resource Group) and certain other broad standardsAICPA: Various Industry-focused GroupsIncludes one for Healthcare and one for NFPsWork to culminate in the issuance of a Revenue Recognition Guide
16 AICPA Revenue Recognition Task Forces Develop a new Accounting Guide on Revenue RecognitionGuide to provide helpful hints and Illustrative examples on how to apply the standardGuidance will not be prescriptive but instead intended to be a resourceFull implementation issues will be posted for comment after review from the overall Revenue Recognition Working Group and FinRECList of issues by industry is posted on the AICPA website
17 ASUAn entity shall consider the terms of the contract and its customary business practices in determining the transaction priceIndicates that the entity should consider its intention to offer price concessions to the customer, which would be applicable to uninsured patients in a provider setting
18 Revenue Recognition Project: Provider Specific Considerations Revenue transactions involving multiple contractual relationshipsMany different parties may be associated with a revenue transaction involving a hospitalThe “customer” is the patientThird-party payor makes payment on the patient’s behalf; it is not a separate “contract with a customer”Many implementation issues will likely arise. Two issues identified as having potential significant impact on providers are:Accounting for uninsured patientsEstimating variable consideration from governmental payors
19 Revenue Recognition Project: Provider Specific Considerations Issue #1: How are services performed from uninsured patients accounted for? See sections through 105Provider evaluates the patient’s intent and ability to payEstimate of variable consideration based on collection history of patients in the customer class (i.e. discounts and price concessions)The amount estimated to be uncollectible from uninsured patients is considered a price concessionGross charges of $10,000 but only expect to receive $1,000 recognize $1,000 of revenue assuming other criteria under are met
20 Financial Reporting - Presentation of Bad Debts Under current practice, ASU requires some healthcare providers to present bad debt as a deduction from patient service revenueUnder the new standard, bad debts will be presented as an operating expense
21 Revenue Recognition Project: Provider Specific Considerations Issue #2: How should providers estimate variable consideration from arrangements from governmental payors?Determination of the transaction price for third-party settlementsMedicare/Medicaid cost report settlementsRAC accrualsRisk adjustments for Prepaid Health plans
22 Revenue Recognition Project: Provider Specific Considerations Issue #2 (cont’d):How does the use of expected amount/most likely amount ( ) differ from today’s “best estimate”?Use method which entity expects to better predict the amount of consideration to which it will be entitledUse of Expected Value (probability-weighted amount)Use of Most Likely Amount (single most likely amount in a range of possible considerations)
23 Other Healthcare Issues identified Identifying the performance obligation and recognition of refundable and non-refundable entrance fees for CCRC’sPrepaid Health ServicesAccountable Care OrganizationsContract acquisition costs

26 Financial Performance: Operating Measure Defined a required intermediate operating measure for all NFPs—based on two dimensions:Mission (Business & Charitable Activity): based on whether resources are from or directed at carrying out an NFP’s purpose for existence (vs. investing and financing)Availability: based on whether resources are available for current period activities and reflecting limits of both:-external donor-imposed limitations and-internal actions of an NFP’s governing boardPresentation of Transfers, to depict internal actions:Separate section within operating measure, after revenue and expense subtotalIncludes gifts of/ for capital items when placed in service
27 Operating MeasureNFP business-oriented health care entities no longer required to present the performance indicatorRemove req. that if an operating measure is presented, then the change in unrestricted net assets must be shown (ASC )

42 Background-HIPAAHealth Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA)Governs the access, use, and disclosure of protected health information by covered entitiesCovered entity:health plan,health care clearinghouse,or a health care provider who transmits any health information in electronic form in connection with a transaction covered by HIPAA
43 Background-HIPAAProtected Health Information (“PHI”): Individually identifiable health information that is transmitted or maintained in any form or medium.Individually Identifiable Health Information: Information, including demographic information, created or received by a health care provider, health plan, employer, or health care clearinghouse that can be used to identify an individual and that relates to the person’s health care.
44 Background-HITECHHealth Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH),Enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“Stimulus Bill”), P.LAmends HIPAA to impose significant new duties on covered entities and business associates to notify patients, the Federal Government, and the media of breaches of unsecured PHIRequires breach investigation and notificationIncreased penalties and sanctions
45 Business AssociateBusiness Associate: third-party (not an employee of the covered entity) that performs or assists in performing a function or activity involving the use or disclosure of PHIVendorsService providers (billing, tech support)Accounting firms, law firms
46 Business Associate Agreements Health plans and providers are required to enter into business associate agreements (“BAAs”) with business associatesBAAs impose on the business associate similar obligations to those on the health plan or providerEither party to a BAA must take action if aware that the other party has violated confidentialityBusiness associates now have affirmative duty to notify covered entities of breaches of unsecured PHI and to take steps to prevent and mitigate breaches.Business associates can be directly liable for breaches and are subject to the same penalties as covered entities.
48 New RP-2014 Mortality Tables Released The Society of Actuaries released new RP-2014 mortality tables in October 2014.These new mortality tables should be used in estimating pension and other obligations with measurement dates of October 2014 and forward.Tables reflect an increase in life expectancy so obligations are expected to increase.Management should discuss the new mortality tables with plan actuaries that they plan to rely on as specialists.
50 Common Practice Issues: RAC Audits Question: Is it appropriate for an HCO to record a revenue reserve at the date the services are rendered for Medicare revenue that it believes CMS will “take back” as a result of future adjustments and/or findings?HCOs should make a reasonable estimate of the amounts it expects to receive from third-party payers and such estimates shall be recorded in the period that the related services are renderedASC states “Estimates of contractual adjustments, other adjustments, and the allowance for uncollectibles shall be reported in the period during which the services are provided even though the actual amounts may become known at a later date.
51 Common Practice Issues: RAC Audits There is significant diversity in practice on how healthcare entities are estimating and recording recoveries for claims under appeal.When an entity receives notification from CMS of the payment reduction it indicates that the revenue criteria may not been met…so the company must evaluate whether this isa change in estimate, ora correction of a prior period error.
52 Common Practice Issues: RAC Audits If this is considered to be a change in estimate thenan accrual for RAC adjustment should be recordedthis is generally a contra revenue adjustment along with the set up of a corresponding liabilityThere is a diversity of practice on when to record a receivable for recoveries on appealed claims.There are two alternate views on this topic…
53 Common Practice Issues: RAC Audits View 1:This view is based on ASC , Contingencies.Since it is not certain that the provider’s appeal will be successful, no receivable or related gain should be recorded until the appeals process is complete.
54 Common Practice Issues: RAC Audits View 2:This view is based on SOP 00-1,“Auditing Health Care Third-Party Revenues and Related Receivables,” which states that “The fact that information related to the effects of future program audits, administrative reviews, regulatory investigations, or other actions does not exist does not lead to a conclusion that the evidence supporting management's assertions is not sufficient to support management's estimates”.Under this view, estimating recoveries for the successful appeal of denied RAC claims would be appropriate.
55 Common Practice Issues: RAC Audits However, this estimate should be based on provider specific facts and circumstances and the success rate of the organization during prior appeals process related to similar claims.While industry data can (i.e. AHA, RACTRAC) be used to corroborate company estimates, many believe that can’t be the sole support for recording claims recoveries.Some firm’s have taken the position that View 1 is the only acceptable response in absence of provider specific data as described above so need to discuss with your auditor early in the estimation process.

62 ASUContinuing Care Retirement Communities – Refundable Advance Fees
63 Otherwise amounts would be classified as a refundable fee liability. ASU : Health Care Entities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities – Refundable Advance FeesContinuing care retirement communities should classify advance fees as deferred revenue only whenA resident contract provides that a portion of the advance fee is refundable upon re-occupancy by a subsequent residentThe refund is limited to the proceeds from the new occupant, andLegal and management policy and practice support the withholding of refunds under this condition.Otherwise amounts would be classified as a refundable fee liability.Reported as cumulative effect adjustment to beginning net assets or retained earnings of the earliest year presented.
64 ASU 2012-01: Health Care Entities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities – Refundable Advance Fees Effective DateFor public entities, effective fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2012If your organization has publicly traded debt or conduit debt, you would be considered a public entity for reporting purposes.For example, tax exempt bonds issued through an issuing authority would be conduit debt.For non-public entities, fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2013.Retrospective application to all prior periods presented upon the date of adoption is permitted.
65 ASUClassification of the Statement of the Sale Proceeds of Donated Financial Assets in the Statement of Cash Flows
66 ASU : Not-for-Profit Entities: Classification of the Sale Proceeds of Donated Financial Assets in the Statement of Cash FlowsAffects entities within the scope of ASC 958 that accept donated financial entitiesNot-for-profit entities receive donations in many forms, including various types of financial assets (e.g., equity and debt securities, partnership interests). Many NFPs have policies requiring that donated financial assets be sold shortly after being received from the donor
67 ASU : Not-for-Profit Entities: Classification of the Sale Proceeds of Donated Financial Assets in the Statement of Cash FlowsA not-for-profit entity should classify the sale of donated securities that are directed to be sold upon receipt in the near-immediate future and that can be sold in the near-immediate future as operating activities in the statement of cash flowsHowever, if the donor restricted the use of the contributed resources to long-term purpose, then those cash receipts should be classified as cash flows from financing activities
68 ASU : Not-for-Profit Entities: Classification of the Sale Proceeds of Donated Financial Assets in the Statement of Cash FlowsEffective DateEffective prospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after June 15, 2013Retrospective application to all prior periods presented upon the date of adoption is permitted
69 ASUObligations Resulting from Joint and Several Liability Arrangements
70 Additional required disclosures ASU : Liabilities, Obligations Resulting from Joint and Several Liability ArrangementsAffects entities that are jointly and severally liable with other entitiesThe ASU requires entities to “measure obligations resulting from joint and several liability arrangements for which the total amount of the obligation within the scope of this guidance is fixed at the reporting date, as the sum of the following:The amount the reporting entity agreed to pay on the basis of its arrangement among its co-obligorsAny additional amount the reporting entity expects to pay on behalf of its co-obligorsAdditional required disclosures
71 ASU 2013-04: Liabilities, Obligations Resulting from Joint and Several Liability Arrangements Effective DateFor public entities, effective for fiscal years beginning after December 31, 2013 (and interim reporting periods within those years)For nonpublic entities, effective for the first annual period ending on or after December 15, 2014 and interim and annual reporting periods thereafterThe ASU should be applied retrospectively to obligations with joint-and-several liabilities existing at the beginning of an entity’s fiscal year of adoption.Entities that elect to use hindsight in measuring their obligations during the comparative periods must disclose that factEarly adoption is permitted
72 ASUServices Received from Personnel of an Affiliate
73 ASU 2013-06: Not-for-Profit Entities, Services Received from Personnel of an Affiliate Affects not-for-profit entities, including not-for profit, business-oriented health care entities, that receive services from personnel of an affiliate that directly benefit the recipient not-for-profit entity and for which the affiliate does not charge the recipient not-for-profit entity.ASU requires a recipient not-for-profit entity to recognize all services received from personnel of an affiliate that directly benefit the recipient not-for-profit entity.Services should be measured at the cost recognized by the affiliate for the personnel providing those services. In certain instances it may not be appropriate to measure at cost, and the recipient not-for-profit entity may elect to recognize the service received at either (1) the cost recognized by the affiliate for the personnel providing that service or (2) the fair value of that service.
74 ASU 2013-06: Not-for-Profit Entities, Services Received from Personnel of an Affiliate Effective dateEffective prospectively for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2014, and interim and annual periods thereafterA recipient not-for-profit entity may apply the amendments by using a modified retrospective approach under which all prior periods presented on the adoption date should be adjusted but no adjustment should be made to the beginning balance of net assets for the earliest period presentedEarly adoption is permitted
