Define each source of revenue and describe the advantages and disadvantages of each
I’m trying to study for my Accounting course and I need some help to understand this question.
Sources of Revenue in For-Profit Healthcare
For this assignment, you will be looking at sources of revenue for HCA Healthcare, Inc. Please visit the following link:
SEC Filings for HCA Healthcare, Inc.
Select the most recent 10-Q filing and review the contents. In particular, review the section on revenue amounts from third-party payers (i.e. Medicare, Medicaid, Managed Care and Insurers, etc.)
Write a 2- to 3-page analysis of the sources of revenue. Be sure to define each source of revenue and describe the advantages and disadvantages of each source from the perspective of the healthcare manager.
As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Your assignment should be addressed in a 2- to 3-page document.
Submit your documents to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
