Allowance for doubtful accounts:

The Company records an allowance for uncollectible accounts which reduces the stated value of receivables on the balance sheet. This allowance is calculated based on a percentage of each aged accounts receivable category beginning at 0-5% on current accounts and increasing incrementally for each additional 30 days the account remains outstanding until the account is over 360 days outstanding, at which time the provision is 80-100% of the outstanding balance. These percentages vary by facility based on each facility’s experience in and expectations for collecting older receivables. The Company compares this required reserve amount to the current “Allowance for doubtful accounts” to determine the required bad debt expense for the period. This method of determining the required “Allowance for doubtful accounts” has historically resulted in an allowance for doubtful accounts of 20% or greater of the total outstanding receivables balance.

Estimates and assumptions:
 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and
