Coronary Heart Disease

1) Explain in detail what Coronary Heart disease is. Coronary heart disease is where plaque builds up in the coronary arteries which supply oxygen rich blood to the heart. The plaque narrows the coronary arteries which reduces the amount of blood flow of the heart. This may lead to further medical problems like heart attacks and even lead to death. 2) What are the risk factors for coronary heart disease? (what increases your risk for coronary heart disease) Age: Getting older increases risk of damaged and narrowed arteries. Gender: Men are generally at greater risk of coronary artery disease.

Copd and Heart Disease

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and heart disease are two of the deadliest chronic illnesses affecting the world’s population. These diseases have caused hundreds of thousands to lose their lives. With the death rate of heart disease and COPD rising, attention should be focused on these diseases and how we can prevent fatalities throughout the world. Educating the public about these diseases is vital in lowering the number of deaths among individuals who have been diagnosed with these diseases.

Physician Reimbursement

The place of service can greatly affect reimbursement, depending on the type of service provided and the location. The reason being is that Medicare typically reimburses physicians based on a method called Relative Value Units (RVUs), which has three components: work, practice expense, and malpractice. Procedures that can be performed in either a facility or non-facility setting have different practice expense RVUs, depending on the place of service. Therefore, the practice expense is a major component in rate determination, because place of service is part of this practice expense component.
