NOTE 2 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Use of estimates
The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include the recoverability and useful lives of long-lived assets, provision against bad debt, the fair value of the Companys stock, and stock-based compensation. Actual results may differ from these estimates.
The Company recognizes revenue when: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed or determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on managements judgments regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts. Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded.
ASC 605-10 incorporates Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 605-25, Multiple-Element Arrangements (ASC 605-25). ASC 605-25 addresses accounting for arrangements that may involve the delivery or performance of multiple products, services and/or rights to use assets. The effect of implementing ASC 605-25 on the Companys financial position and results of operations was not significant.
The Company recognizes in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 954-310, Health Care Entities (ASC 954-310), significant patient service revenue at the time the services are rendered, even though it does not assess the patients ability to pay. Therefore, The Companys interim and annual periods reports disclose both, its policy for assessing and disclosing the timing and amount of uncollectable patient service revenue recognized as doubtful. Qualitative and quantitative information about significant changes in the allowance for doubtful accounts related to patient accounts receivable are disclosed in the Companys reports. These estimates are based upon the history and identified trends for each of our payers.
Patient service revenue
The Company recognizes patient service revenue associated with services provided to patients who have third-party payer coverage on the basis of contractual rates for the services provided. For uninsured or self-pay patients that do not qualify for charity care, the Company recognizes revenue on the basis of its standard rates for services provided (or on the basis of discounted rates, if negotiated or provided by policy). On the basis of historical experience, a portion of the Companys patient service revenue may be potentially uncollectible due to patients who are unable or unwilling to pay for the services provided or the portion of their bill for which they are responsible. Thus, the Company records a provision for bad debts related to potentially uncollectible patient service revenue in the period the services are provided.
Concentrations of credit risk
The Companys financial instruments that are exposed to a concentration of customer risk and accounts receivable risk. Occasionally, the Companys cash and cash equivalents in interest-bearing accounts may exceed FDIC insurance limits. The financial stability of these institutions is periodically reviewed by senior management. Revenues and accounts receivable are concentrated between two major payers with the approximate risk level outlined below.
As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Companys allowance for bad debts was $3,455,094 and $3,680,837, respectively.
Net (loss) income per share
Basic net (loss) income per common share is based upon the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net income per common share is based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and potentially dilutive common shares outstanding and computed as follows:
The diluted earnings per common share included the effect of 3,333,333 common shares issuable upon the conversion of debt for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.The computation excludes potentially dilutive securities when their inclusion would be anti-dilutive, or if their exercise prices were greater than the average market price of the common stock during the period.
Potentially dilutive common shares from convertible debt and from employee equity plans and issued warrants are determined by applying the treasury stock method to the assumed exercise of warrants and share options are were excluded from the computation of the diluted net income per share because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. In addition, there were no vested restrict stock for periods presented. Potentially dilutive securities excluded from the basic and diluted net income per share are as follows:
The Company uses the cost method when it purchases its own common stock as treasury shares and displays treasury stock as a reduction of shareholders equity.
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior periods data to conform to the current years presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on reported income or losses.
Recent accounting pronouncements
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). The guidance requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. The FASB delayed the effective date to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. Earlier application is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. In addition, in March and April 2016, the FASB issued new guidance intended to improve the operability and understandability of the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations. Both amendments permit the use of either a retrospective or cumulative effect transition method and are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early application permitted. The Company is assessing the impact of this new standard on its financial statements and has not yet selected a transition method.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02Leases (Topic 842), requiring lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with the exception of short-term leases. For lessees, leases will continue to be classified as either operating or finance leases in the income statement. The effective date of the new standard for public companies is for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The new standard must be adopted using a modified retrospective transition and requires application of the new guidance at the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented. The Company is evaluating the effect that the updated standard will have on its financial statements and related disclosures.
In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-15Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. ASU 2016-15 provides guidance for eight specific cash flow issues with respect to how cash receipts and cash payments are classified in the statements of cash flows, with the objective of reducing diversity in practice. The effective date for ASU 2016-15 is for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of this new standard on its financial statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2017-04, Intangibles Goodwill and Other (Topic 350). The amendments in this update simplify the test for goodwill impairment by eliminating Step 2 from the impairment test, which required the entity to perform procedures to determine the fair value at the impairment testing date of its assets and liabilities following the procedure that would be required in determining fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. The amendments in this update are effective for public companies for annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. We are evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Business Combinations (Topic 805); Clarifying the Definition of a Business. The amendments in this update clarify the definition of a business to help companies evaluate whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions or disposals of assets or businesses. The amendments in this update are effective for public companies for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. We are evaluating the impact of adopting this guidance on our Consolidated Financial Statements.
The Company evaluates events that have occurred after the balance sheet date but before the financial statements are issued. Based upon the evaluation, the Company did not identify any recognized or non-recognized subsequent events that would have required adjustment or disclosure in the condensed consolidated financial statements, except as disclosed.
