  1. You only got #1 correct. I just took this test about 2 weeks ago and have the answers in front of me. i will walk you through it. in your book go to page 249....

    #2. if the stay was for 10 days then she automatically owes $912 (annual deductible) so the answer is B. $912

    #3. she was in the SNF which is free for the first 20 days. so, she pays $114 per day for the last 15 days. 114x15=1710. so the answer is C. $1710

    #4. she pays 20% of her DME which is $2,500. 2,500x .20=500... so that would be B. $500

    #5 the total amount medicare will pay for home health care is the amount for the DME which is $2,000 (patient pays $500) plus the $7,000 approved amount which equals.... D. $9,000

    hopefully this makes sense to you as it took me a while to figure it out. good luck :)

  3. Robles,

    I am working on this exam right now. I am having problems with the question - What reimbursement amount will the hospital recive from Medicare? You say it is A. $12,856. What are your calculations? I just can't see how you came up with that amount.

    If Robles or someone else could show me how to get $12,856 I would really appreciate it.
