In this assessment, you will evaluate the physicians’ practice financial condition based on the following Relative Value Unit (RVU) calculations and analysis:

- Average and Marginal Costs per RVU,
- Total Average Cost,
- Total Marginal Cost per CPT code, and
- Analyzing the information to assist the physicians in using these costs appropriately and making informed decisions.

You will be graded based on your understanding of the calculations, the accuracy of your calculations, the validity of your conclusions and your ability to clearly communicate your analysis. To complete this assignment, follow these steps:

- Review the article
**How Managerial Accountants Make Physician’s Practices More Profitable** - From this financial information, calculate the three RVU calculations:
- Average and Marginal Costs per RVU,
- Total Average Cost, and
- Total Marginal cost per CPT code.
- In proper APA format, write a 3-5 page paper (include a cover and reference page not included in page count). For each RVU calculation, in a paragraph:
- Calculate the costs,
- Show your calculations, and
- Write a conclusion about the physician practice’s financial condition and discuss how you can assist the physicians in using these costs in making informed decisions.

*Please use headings for each paragraph and category to decipher the discussion and organize the paragraphs.

Use the following assumptions:
