How is a return on equity calculated?

Calculating return on equity is a three-step process.
(1) First, a provider's net equity is calculated using appropriate items from the provider's most recent cost report and relevant medicare rules and regulations. Note: Goodwill is not included in the calculation of net equity. Also, monthly equity calculations will not be used.
(2) Second, the medicare rate of return for the twelve-month period ending on the provider's cost report-closing date is multiplied by the provider's net equity.
(3) Finally, the amount calculated in subsection (2) is divided by the provider's annual resident days for the cost report period to determine a return on equity rate per resident day.
