    Free cash flow = Cash provided by operations - Capital expenditures - Cash dividends

    $89,303,000 - 25,823,000 - 0 = $63,480,000

    Current cash debt coverage = Cash provided by operations / Average current liabilities

    $89,303,000 / 251,522,000 = 0.36

    Cash debt coverage = Cash provided by operations / Average total liabilities

    $89,303,000 / 286,214,500 = 0.31

    Enroll more Physician Assistants. My primary care doctor functions more as a traffic cop, telling me which specialist to see than a doctor. His office sees me once a year, takes some blood and my blood pressure, he writes me a single prescription for my back pain and if I catch a cold during the year I see him to make sure it doesn't go to pneumonia, when its something more he sends me to a specialist. There is nothing there a Nurse or a Physicians assistant couldn't do with no loss of quality. The whole primary care deal was put up by the insurance companies who were convinced that people were taking advantage and seeing specialists when a gp would do. They were wrong, and all they did was add a layer of costs. In fact, they had to change the part where a woman has to see her primary to get a referral to her obgyn, because a woman knows when she needs to see one. With all the advances in medical science it only makes sense that well trained doctors don't want to diagnose more than a drippy nose.
