Navigating the New Revenue Recognition Rules for Healthcare Providers

PYA_Revenue_Recognition_WP-Slider-eNewsletter (3)A new white paper from PYA provides an overview of a recently issued Accounting Standards Update that addresses revenue recognition from contracts with customers and examines the impact of this new standard on healthcare providers.

With the recent issuance of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, healthcare providers are finding they must again adapt to a game-changing standard that addresses the ways in which they must deal with revenue recognition. While the new standard’s implementation date is effective in December 2017, public entities are required to adopt earlier, and non-public entities may choose to early adopt. Therefore, entities must be aware of what this new standard will mean for their organizations, and begin to prepare now.

PYA has released a new white paper, “Navigating the New Revenue Recognition Rules for Healthcare Providers,” which outlines the new principle-based approach for recognizing revenue—essentially a five-step process. In addition, the white paper summarizes items which will require healthcare providers to use increased focus and judgment. One such consideration is the transaction price and how the provider should estimate variable consideration and report price concessions. The paper also touches on recognizing revenue when no contract is present.

As the new ASU could potentially affect the way healthcare providers conduct business and perform daily accounting functions, the white paper offers guidance that these entities can use to better understand the regulation and its implementation in their organizations.
