    2. Why pricing? 1 GROWTH IN HOSPITAL COSTS/CHARGES National Health Expenditures (top five areas – millions)

    3. Why pricing? 1 GROWTH IN HOSPITAL COSTS/CHARGES Annualized Change in National Health Expenditures by Area Source: CMS

    4. Why pricing? 1 GROWTH IN HOSPITAL COSTS/CHARGES Inflationary Changes by Metric & Year

    5. Why pricing? 1 GROWTH IN HOSPITAL COSTS/CHARGES Rate Increase Median Limit Value 5.0% 5.0% 6.0% 5.0%

    6. Why pricing? 2 INCREASED GOVERNMENT/LEGAL ATTENTION Hospitals, SEIU-UHW Reach Visionary Agreement on Future of Health Care Policy, Relationships in California May 2, 2012 The California Hospital Association and SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West have reached a comprehensive, strategic agreement to jointly take on the many challenges facing the health care system, including rising costs, burgeoning levels of chronic disease, and the need to provide the highest quality of care for the people of California. Reached after two months of meetings and conversations to discuss issues of mutual interest, the agreement calls for SEIU-UHW and CHA to work in good faith, along with other key stakeholders, to find practical solutions that can replace or improve the current hospital pricing system and protect the neediest patients by addressing uncompensated care in hospitals in a manner that accounts for low Medicare and Medi-Cal payments. Issued jointly by CHA and SEIU-UHW

    7. Why pricing? 2 INCREASED GOVERNMENT/LEGAL ATTENTION What is driving the need for transparency?

    10. Today’s Objectives Understand the relationships of operating environment factors on hospital price through a national data studyWHAT INFLUENCES HOSPITAL PRICING? Assess current price position with critical performance metrics for inpatient and outpatient areasHOW DO WE COMPARE PRICES? Defend hospital pricing in light of unique operating environments by implementing appropriate policies and strategic modelsHOW DO WE DEFEND PRICES?

    11. WHAT INFLUENCES HOSPITAL PRICE?

    12. Three spheres of influence on price • DesiredNet Income • Sustainable growth determines reasonablenessof target What influences hospital pricing? • CompetitivePosition • Quality • Cost • Market Share • Capital Intensity • Payer Mix • MarketStructure • Buyers/Sellers • Barriers to Entry • Price Elasticity PRICE

    13. Testing price variables Who is likely to have the highest charges among hospitals that are: • Urban vs Rural • For-Profit vs Non-Profit • Large vs Small • High Market Share vs Low Market Share • High Medicaid vs Low Medicaid • High Cost vs Low Cost What influences hospital pricing? $

    34. PAYMENT IS KEY IN HOSPITAL PRICING

    35. Analysis of Payer Environment & Hospital Price Average Cost per Patient = $100 Payment key in hospital pricing ??? Required Payment from Five Remaining Patients = $270 ($1,350/5)

    36. Analysis of Payer Environment & Hospital Price Pricing Requirements Payment key in hospital pricing • Average costs • Losses on patients who pay less than cost • Discounts to charge patients • Uninsured • Commercial • Reasonable return on investment • Sustainable growth

    37. Analysis of Payer Environment & Hospital Price Pricing Model Payment key in hospital pricing Use this model for price-setting at facility level: Price must increase when: Average cost increases Net income requirementsincrease (NI + fixed pay loss) avg cost + Price = charge volume Losses from fixed pay businessincreases (1 - charge discount) The percentage of charge paying patients decreases The discount from charges increases

    45. HOW DO WE DEFEND HOSPITAL PRICES?

    46. Three approaches to hospital price defense How do we defend prices? 2 3 1 Peer Position Cost Markup ROI Model

    47. Return on Investment Model 1 Relating pricing to ROI: the public-utility approach Public utilities have used a Return on Investment (ROI) model to justify price increases to rate regulatory boards. The approach isolates the price variable from the ROI formula (below) and “tests” the remaining elements. If it can be proved that ROI, Cost, and Investment are not excessive, then price must also not be excessive. In the following pages, we present these tests. How do we defend prices? Tests Is ROI excessive? Is cost excessive? Is investment excessive? If “no” to all three, price is not excessive. ROI FormulaROI = (volume x price) - (volume x cost) investment

    48. Return on Investment Model 1 How do we defend prices? ROE: Excess of Revenue over Expenses/Net Assets Tests • Is ROI excessive? • Is investment excessive? • Is cost excessive?

    49. Return on Investment Model 1 How do we defend prices? Average Age of Plant: Accumulated Depreciation/Depreciation Expense Fixed Asset Turnover: Total Revenue/Net Fixed Assets Tests • Is ROI excessive? • Is investment excessive? • Is cost excessive?
