PREFACE  
As has been our custom since we were one year old, we present  
our annual report of the fiscal affairs and the field of operations of
the Frontier Nursing Service, Incorporated.
We have, as in previous years, divided our report into two
sections. One section is about money, and one section about work.

We have examined the balance sheets of Frontier Nursing Service, Inc. as
of April 30, 1981 and 1980, and the related statements of revenues and
expenses, changes in fund balances and changes in financial position for
the years then ended. Our examinations were made in accordance with
generally accepted auditing standards and, accordingly, included such
tests of the accounting records and such other auditing procedures as
we considered necessary in the circumstances. _
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present
fairly the financial position of Frontier Nursing Service, Inc. at
April 30, 1981 and 1980, and the results of its operations and changes
in its financial position for the years then ended, in conformity with
generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FRONTIER NURSING SERVICE, INC.
April 30, 1981
NOTE A--ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Organization: Frontier Nursing Service was organized in 1925 as a nonprofit
charitable organization. The Service's purpose is to provide needed health
Q1 services in the Appalachian area. During its early years, the Service was
§ the only provider of health services in the area and it remains the largest
N provider of health services in Leslie County and the portion of surrounding
. counties comprising its service area. The Service operates an accredited
{L midwifery and family nursing school, a home health agency, a 40 bed hospital,
‘ and provides primary care services through a primary care center and out-
lying extension clinics. Frontier Nursing Service has historically been
dependent on charitable contributions to fund a significant portion of the
costs of services and programs.
Patient Service Revenues: Patient service revenues are recorded at
established rates regardless of whether collection in full is expected.
Contractual allowances, charity, and bad debts are reported as deductions
from patient service revenues.
Unrestricted Donations and Grants: Donations and grants which are not
restricted by donors are reported as nonoperating revenues. Donations under
will are recorded when received by the Service.
Investments: Investments are stated in the financial statements at cost or,
if donated, at fair market value at the date of donation. Investment income
is accounted for on the cash basis which is not significantly different from
the accrual method. Gain or (loss) from sale of investments is the difference
between proceeds received and the carrying value of the investment sold. Un-
realized gains or losses are not included in the accompanying financial state-
ments.
Board-Designated Funds: The Board of Governors has designated the Consolidate
Investment Fund for accumulating funds for such operating and general purposes
as they may determine.
The Board of Governors has designated that unrestricted donations and income
J from the principal portion of the Consolidated Investment Fund be used to
Q` subsidize care for indigent patients unless such funds are specifically
Y designated by the Board for other uses.
i In 1981, the Board of Governors adopted the policy of funding depreciation.
" Amounts so funded are designated for replacement, expansion or improvements
- of the Service's facilities.
Restricted Funds: Restricted funds represent endowments, the principal or
corpus of which cannot be expended. Income from such endowments is available

l NOTE A--ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES-—Continued
i for operating purposes and is credited to revenue when earned in accordance ,
with donor's instructions.
. Frontier Nursing Service, Inc. is also income beneficiary of certain trust E
funds (aggregate market value at April 30, 1981 and 1980--approximately $440,00C
and $392,000, respectively) which are not administered or controlled by the
Service. Accordingly, such funds are not included in the balance sheets at y
April 30, 1981 and 1980.
1 Resources restricted by donors for additions to property are recorded as X
increases to the unrestricted fund balance when expended for the purposes .
intended. Resources restricted by donors for specific operating purposes are _
credited to other operating revenues when expended for the purposes intended.
Inventories: Inventories, principally medical supplies and drugs, are stated
at cost (first—in, first—out method) which is not in excess of market.
Property and Eguipment: Propertj and equipment is stated at cost, or fair
market value at date of donation for items donated to the Service. Depre-
ciation has been computed on the straight-line method over the estimated useful
lives.
NOTE B--MEDICARE AND MEDICAID PROGRAMS
The Service participates in the Medicare and Medicaid Programs for eligible
services. These Programs make interim payments to the Service based on
estimates during the year and the difference between estimated payments
and amounts actually due to the Service are determined based on cost reports
prepared by the Service at year—end. These Programs reimburse the Service
for services provided to Program beneficiaries based upon the lower of
Program costs or customary charges. In the past, costs for the Hospital and
Clinics exceeded customary charges and thus, reimbursement was limited to
the amount of customary charges. The Programs permit carrying forward
amounts not reimbursed due to this limitation for two years. During 1981, H
charges exceeded cost and a portion of such carryforward (i.e., the dif- S
ference between cost and charges) was recouped. Home Health Agency reim- Q
bursement in 1981 was not limited because of the lower of QOSC or charge `
principle. The estimated payable to the Medicare Program for the Home @
Health Agency during 1981 is included in the financial statements. Audits
or reviews of ¢he cost reports have been substantially completed by the 1
federal or state agencies through the year ended April 30, 1979 and ade-
quate provision has been made for the results thereof and other potential
adjustments for 1980 and 1981 costs reports, which have not yet been audited.

NOTE C-—EXPIRATION OF TERM ENDOWMENT
I At April 30, 1980, endowment funds included a term endowment consisting of
g a $100,000 unsecured note receivable due December 31, 1988. During 1981, the
} note was sold to the issuer for $50,000, resulting in a loss of $50,000.
