15. Commitments and Contingencies
From time to time, we are party to pending or threatened lawsuits arising out of or incident to the ordinary course of business. We carry professional and general liability insurance coverage and other insurance coverages. In the opinion of management and upon consultation with legal counsel, none of the pending or threatened lawsuits will have a material effect upon the consolidated financial position, operations, or cash flows of the Company.
We carry a broad range of insurance coverage, including general and business auto liability, commercial property, workers’ compensation, cyber risk, and general umbrella policies. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we accrued $2,033 and $3,230, respectively, for assessments on insurance claims filed, which are included in other accrued expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we recorded $1,759 and $2,627, respectively, in receivables from its non-healthcare insurance carriers related to these insurance claims, which are included in other
receivables in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. The receivables are paid when the claim is finalized and the reserved amounts on these claims are expected to be paid within one year.
Operations at certain facilities currently or previously owned or leased by us utilize, or in the past have utilized, hazardous substances generally in compliance with applicable law. Periodically, we have had minor claims asserted against it by regulatory agencies or private parties for environmental matters relating to the handling of hazardous substances by us, and it has incurred obligations for investigations or remedial actions with respect to certain of these matters. There can be no assurances that activities at these facilities, or future facilities owned or operated by us, may not result in additional environmental claims being asserted against us or additional investigations or remedial actions being required. We are not aware of any significant remediation matters as of March 31, 2023. Because of various factors including the difficulty of identifying the responsible parties for any particular site, the complexity of determining the relative liability among them, the uncertainty as to the most desirable remediation techniques and the amount of damages and clean-up costs and the time period during which such costs may be incurred, we are unable to reasonably estimate the ultimate cost of claims asserted against us related to environmental matters; however, we do not believe such costs will be material to its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
In addition to potential claims asserted against us, there are certain regulatory obligations associated with these facilities. We also have a third-party specialist to review the sites subject to these regulations annually, for the purpose of assigning future cost. A third party has conducted a preliminary assessment of site restoration provisions arising from these regulations and we have recognized a provisional amount. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we recorded an environmental remediation accrual of $10 and $12, which is included in other accrued expenses in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.
The entire disclosure for commitments and contingencies.
