The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued an Accounting Standards Update (ASU) on lease accounting. This ASU affects all companies that lease assets and can significantly change the way health care entities account for leasing arrangements. The new guidance is intended to increase transparency in lease accounting by requiring organizations to report any long-term lease liability on the balance sheet.

In this webinar, learn the importance of the new two-lease model, financial reporting changes, impacts on covenants, and the timing and implementation of the new updates. In addition, hear how health care organizations are using leasing to fund growth. Case studies from Allegan General Hospital, Foothill Community Health Center and Blue Mountain Health System will be shared, including which leasing or financing options they used, and the benefits of each type of leasing or financing options.
