Final project for reimbursement methodologies


Reimbursement Methodologies Final Project




The executive finance team at Anywhere Hospital is reviewing charge levels for various surgical units.


The team leader has requested a CDM management report from the CDM coordinator (You). She would like the report to include the following: 


Medicare reimbursement, cost, and profit for procedures performed during first quarter 20xx (current year).


Additionally, she would like third-party payer average reimbursement, cost, and profit for the same time period. Complete the Excel spreadsheet and provide your analysis.


To obtain the MCR Reimbursement (Medicare):  Locate current Medicare rate for each CPT code on the most current OPPS Addendum B. Copy the link below into your Web browser or view in Slide Show: 


Visit to find and download Addendum B (center of page)


Transfer the rate figure from Column “F” to the correct row on your spreadsheet in Column “I” “TPP Reimbursement” (Third Party Payer): 


                Calculate the TPP Reimbursement using the following formula in Excel: (=F2*.62) -average reimbursement rate for TPP Column F (charge multiplied by .62)


                Insert the calculated figure in Column J


MCR Cost = Charge * RCC.


Use the RCC provided in the scenario based on the line item revenue code


360 is 0.4043


320 is 0.5267


TPP Cost = Charge * RCC. Note: there is no difference between MCR cost and TPP cost. MCR Profit = MCR Reimbursement – MCR Cost


TPP Profit = TPP Reimbursement – TPP Cost


MCR Overall Profit:  Multiply profit figures times volumes provided.


TPP Overall Profit:  Multiply profit figures times volumes provided


See following example for formulas Now that you have completed your spreadsheet, answer the following questions in a separate Word Document.  Support your answers.

What are the most profitable Medicare

procedures?  Least profitable? 


What would you suggest to the Team Leader for the CDM Management?
