Section 442.8 - Full disclosure

442.8 Full disclosure. (1170) The concept of full disclosure requires that all significant data be clearly and completely reflected in accounting reports. If, for example, a hospital were to change its method of accounting for certain transactions, within the limitations of this manual, and if the change had a material effect on the reported financial position or operating results, the nature of the change in method and its effect must be disclosed when reporting costs to any agency. No fact that would influence the decisions of management, the governing board, or other users of financial statements should be omitted from or concealed in accounting reports.
