The purpose of this research is to develop a financial model for Naval Medical Center San Diego for the calculation of an appropriate capitation rate under capitation budgeting. The current cost accounting system at Naval Medical Center San Diego and records of the Military Expense and Reporting System and the Uniform Management Report were analyzed to determine their usefulness in providing the information for and implementing capitation budgeting. An accounting model based on the principles of activity-based costing was used to develop a financial model and was applied to the current accounting system at Naval Medical Center San Diego. The research showed the current accounting system used at Naval Medical Center San Diego and the Military Expense and Reporting System and the Uniform Management Report do not provide the needed financial information for the calculation of an appropriate capitation rate. The accounting system will need to be realigned to identify expenses by activities versus cost categories. The analysis done for this thesis indicates that activity-based costing can provide a more accurate measure of the cost of services (outputs) and facilitate in the calculation of an appropriate capitation rate for Naval Medical Center San Diego.
