Basis Of Presentation  



A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the presentation of the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements follows:




The (a) condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2016, which has been derived from the audited financial statements of First Choice Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (“FCHS” and including, where appropriate, its consolidated subsidiaries and entities in which we have a controlling financial interest, the “Company”), and (b) the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of June 30, 2017 and 2016 of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 8-03 of Regulation S-X. To determine if we hold a controlling financial interest in an entity, we first evaluate if we are required to apply the variable interest entity (“VIE”) model to the entity, otherwise the entity is evaluated under the voting interest model.


Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017 or any other period. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2016 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 3, 2017.


Basis of Presentation


Effective April 4, 2012, Medical Billing Assistance, Inc., a Colorado corporation (“Medical Billing”), merged with and into the Company. The effect of the merger was that Medical Billing reincorporated from Colorado to Delaware (the “Reincorporation”). The Company is deemed to be the successor issuer of Medical Billing under Rule 12g-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).


Other than the foregoing, the Reincorporation did not result in any change in the business, management, fiscal year, accounting, and location of the principal executive offices, assets or liabilities of the Company.


On April 2, 2012, the Company completed its acquisition of First Choice Medical Group of Brevard, LLC (“FCMG - Brevard”), pursuant to the Membership Interest Purchase Closing Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”). The Company has been managing the practice of First Choice – Brevard since November 1, 2011, pursuant to a Management Services Agreement.


Brevard Orthopedic Spine & Pain Clinic, Inc.


Effective May 1, 2015, the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, TBC Holdings of Melbourne, Inc., entered into an Operating and Control Agreement (the Agreement”) with Brevard Orthopaedic Spine & Pain Clinic, Inc. (“The B.A.C.K. Center”), whereby we have sole and exclusive management and control of The B.A.C.K. Center, including, but not limited to, administrative, financial, facility and business operations including the requirement to absorb losses or right to receive economic benefits. We issued 3,000,000 options to purchase our Company’s Common Stock at $1.35 per share to The B.A.C.K. Center employees providing specific qualifications are met. The initial term of the Agreement relating to the options expired on December 31, 2016, with the Company having the right to extend the term until December 31, 2023. We exercised our option to extend the term until December 31, 2017. 


The Agreement allows the Company to hold the current or potential rights that give it the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance, combined with a variable interest that gives the Company the right to receive potentially significant benefits or the obligation to absorb potentially significant losses. The Company has a controlling financial interest in the VIE. Rights held by others to remove the party with power over the VIE are not considered unless one party can exercise those rights unilaterally. When changes occur to the structure of the entity, the Company will reconsider whether it is subject to the VIE model. The Company continuously evaluates whether it has a controlling financial interest in the VIE.


Crane Creek Surgery Center


Effective October 1, 2015, the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, CCSC Holdings, Inc., acquired a 40% interest in Crane Creek Surgery Center (“Crane Creek”). In connection with the investment, the Company is entitled to 51% voting rights for all decisions that most significantly affect the economic performance of Crane Creek. The 40% equity interest acquired entitles the Company to 40% of the profit or loss of Crane Creek.


Non-controlling interests relate to the third-party ownership in a consolidated entity in which the Company has a controlling interest. For financial reporting purposes, the entity’s assets, liabilities, and operations are consolidated with those of the Company, and the non-controlling interest in the entity is included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements as a component of total equity.


The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiaries: Marina Towers, LLC, FCID Medical Inc., TBC Holdings of Melbourne, Inc., First Choice – Brevard, Surgical Partners of Melbourne, Inc. and CCSC Holdings, Inc., along with two VIEs, The B.A.C.K. Center and Crane Creek. All significant intercompany balances and transactions, including those involving the VIEs, have been eliminated in consolidation.
