|Accounting Changes and Error Corrections [Abstract]|
|Restatement of Previously Issued Consolidated Financial Statements||
Management identified historical accounting errors principally related to a calculation error resulting in an overstatement of estimated accounts receivable collections. Due to the nature of the industry and the reimbursement environment in which the Company operates, certain estimates are required to record net revenues and accounts receivable at their net realizable value. Accounts receivable are reported at the estimated net realizable amounts from patients, third-party payors and other direct pay customers for goods provided and services rendered. The Company performs periodic analyses to assess the accounts receivable balances. The Company records an allowance for doubtful accounts and contractual allowance (to reduce gross billed charges to a contractual or estimated net realizable value from third-party payors) based on management’s assessment of historical and expected estimated collectability of the accounts such that the recorded amounts reflect estimated net realizable value. Upon determination that an account is uncollectible, the account is written-off and charged to the allowance for doubtful accounts for patients or the contractual allowance for third-party payors. The Company’s allowance for doubtful accounts and contractual allowance are a reduction to accounts receivable on the Company’s consolidated financial position. Additions to the contractual allowance each period offset gross billed charges, which are not publicly reported in the Company’s filings, to arrive at net revenue, which is publicly reported in the Company’s consolidated results of operations. Additions to the allowance for doubtful accounts, however, impact the bad debt expense line item of the Company’s consolidated results of operations. The Company discovered that it has been applying an incorrect cash collection percentage due to a calculation error when calculating the historical collection percentage from certain billings to third-parties. This calculation error resulted in an overstatement of historical cash collection percentages from this revenue, which was then used to estimate future cash collections relative to an outstanding accounts receivable balance.
The calculation error affects only the Company’s rentals of infusion pumps to patients, which are paid for by third-party insurance payors. Revenue resulting from sales, service and rentals directly billed to health care providers is not impacted by this calculation error.
The impact on the Company’s financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 is to increase the provision for contractual allowance (thereby reducing accounts receivable as shown on the balance sheet), as follows:
The impact of these amounts were included in the following items on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015:
