Deferred revenue


In order to increase cash flow to providers of services and suppliers impacted by the pandemic, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) expanded its Accelerated and Advance Payment Program to a broader group of Medicare providers. We applied for and received a $2,526 payment advance from this program in April 2020. Since the Company had the right to repay the advance at any time, the entire balance was considered current. The recoupment of the CMS advance started April 2021 and was completed by April 2022. At July 31, 2021 and 2020, the deferred revenue related to the CMS payment advance was $1,847 and $2,526, respectively.


Self-Insured Medical Plan


The Company self-funds medical insurance coverage for certain of its U.S. based employees. The risk to the Company is believed to be limited through the use of individual and aggregate stop loss insurance. As of July 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company had established reserves of $260 and $300 respectively, which are included in accrued liabilities for payroll, benefits and commissions, for claims that have been reported but not paid and for claims that have been incurred but not reported. The reserve is based upon the Company’s historical payment trends, claim history and current estimates.
