D) 195,000

E) 145,000

Rent                              $5,000

Depreciation                   $30,000

Utilities                          $2,500

Medical Supplies             $50,000

Administrative supplies    $10,000

 Assume that all costs are fixed except supplies costs, which are variable. What is your clinic's variable cost rate?

A) 3

3. You decide to go into consulting.  One of your clients, a CFO of a non-for-profit hospital asks your opinion about the acquisition of a local physician practice for $2,000,000. After the acquisition, the CFO expects to be reimbursed under APC and  to pay out physicians (Salary expense) under RBRVS. The CFO also expects to spend on average $250,000/year in other expenses. Over the next 5 years, RBRVS and APC weights are expected to remain the same.  Also the conversion factor for RBRVS is expected to remain at $34.0376 and the APC conversion factor is expected to remain $70.016. The number of visits will also likely behave the same. Here are the statistics of the physician practice from 2008-20012:

You are contemplating the possibility of starting a new business. After weighting different options, you decide to start a company that releases patient medical records (health information).

Current analysis

You will need about $150,000 in start-up costs but you can only borrow half of that amount from your family's home equity (at 13% interest). You will have to borrow the rest of the needed capital from a local community bank at 10%. Suppose you decide to take out a 5 year loan. Here is the amortization schedule:
