PLEASE NOTE, ALL WORK MUST BE ORIGINAL AND NO PLAGIARISM Discussion 1 Ethical Decision-making in the Global Economy Because management, and more specifically, accounting and decision-making have become so intensely important in the health care industry, the Unit 1 Discussion will examine several health care related issues. Insert the title of the article in the Google search bar: Whaley, C., Schneider Chafen, J., Pinkard, S., Kellerman, G., Bravata, D., Kocher, R., & Sood, N. (2014). Association between availability of health service prices and payments for these services. JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association, 312(16), 1670. Scenario: M. Harley recently began a new job as the accounting manager for a local medical clinic. A billing statement has just been received from GalaxyLabs, one of several such labs that perform tests for the clinic. M. Harley notices that the lab charges the clinic $30.00 for a standard blood test. The clinic, however, bills patients or their companies $120 for the test. The $120 is the standard insurance reimbursement paid on behalf of the patient. Therefore, the clinic is profiting on every blood test ordered. After additional investigation, M. Harley finds similar mark-ups on other lab tests. M. Harley is concerned about this billing practice and suspects the clinic may have selected the lab based on low cost rather than on the lab’s qualifications. Another concern would be the accuracy of all lab test results. M. Harley also wonders if profit potential is motivating doctors to order unnecessary tests. Checklist: 1) First, read the required article. 2) Then review Opinion 8.09 of the American Medical Association’s Medical Code of Ethics in the attachment. 3) Based on the article reading and the ethical considerations in checklist item 2, do you believe that the scenario describing the clinic’s billing for lab tests is an acceptable business practice? Discuss your reasoning.
