The Housekeeping Service department of Ruger Clinic Ruger Clinic
The Housekeeping Service department of Ruger Clinic, a multispecialty practice in
Toledo, Ohio, had $100,000 in direct costs in 2007. These costs must be allocated to Ruger’s three revenue-producing patient services departments using the direct method. Two cost drivers are under consideration: patient services revenue and hours of housekeeping services used. The patient services departments generated $5 million in total revenues in 2007, and to support these clinical activities, they used 5,000 hours of housekeeping services.

1. What is the value of the cost pool?
2. What is the allocation rate if: a. Patient services revenue is used as the cost driver?
b. Hours of housekeeping services is used as the cost driver?
3. What is a cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis and why is it useful to health services managers?
4. Compare and contrast the following three methods of developing capitation rates: fee-for-service approach; cost approach; and demographic approach.
5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of conventional budgeting versus zero-based budgeting?
