Per member per month (pmpm)

Per member per month (pmpm)

Before beginning work on this assignment, please review the expanded grading rubric for specific instructions relating to content and formatting.

Consider the following data and make your best analysis of per member per month (PMPM) rates, considering reductions in utilization or pricing. Bay Pines Medical Center estimates that a capitated population of 50,000 would have the following base case utilization and total cost characteristics:

 Service Category

 Inpatient Days
 per 1,000 Enrollees

 Average Cost
 per Day

 General

 150

 $1,500

 Surgical

 125

 $1,800

 Psychiatric 

 70

 $700

 Alcohol/Drug Abuse

 38

 $500

 Maternity

 42

 $1,500

 Total

 425

 $1,367

In addition to medical costs, Bay Pines allocates 10 percent of the total premium for administration/reserves.

On the basis of your data analysis, respond to the following:

  • What is the PMPM rate that Bay Pines must set to cover medical costs plus administrative expenses?
  • What would be the rate if a utilization management program were to reduce utilization within each patient service category by 10 percent? And by 20 percent?
  • Consider the initial base case utilization assumption. What rate would be set if the average cost on each service were reduced by 10 percent?
  • Assume that both utilization and cost reductions were made. What would the premium be?

As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
