Throughout this essay is discussion about two patient scenarios examining; a case with insurance and a case without insurance. Discuss with Mrs. Zwick’s daughter, which of Mrs. Zwicks’s hospital costs will be covered, fully or partially based upon Medicare coverage with the following information: Medicare Part A Medicare part A covers payment for Mrs. Zwick’s hospital stay, because she is eligible. Through her working life Mrs. Zwick paid for this Medicare coverage through her taxes. This insurance is “premium free” meaning she is not required to pay annual premium to receive this coverage, but will be required to pay a deductible and once this cost is met then Medicare part will pay the cost of inpatient care during hospitalization, up to 60 days, the first 20 days of home health care, skilled care in a nursing home, and hospice care.

Mental/Behavioral Case Study Shanille Banks HCS/245 November 24, 2014 Professor Cheryl Meaux Mental/Behavioral Case Study My client Jenny Stanson, a 20 year-old college student living with her grandmother came to me seeking help for her grandmother who has shown symptoms of having Alzheimer’s disease. She noticed that her grandmother seems to be confused at times, forgetful of things that she has been told, and is often short-tempered. Ms. Stanson stated to me even though these symptoms mentioned do not happen often, this is clearly not her grandmother’s normal behavior. Ms. Stanson is very concerned about the well-being of her grandmother and something has to be done to get to the bottom of the problem. After reviewing this case, we cannot assume that Ms. Stanson’s grandmother actually has Alzheimer’s disease, even with the symptoms that may be present.
The activity is a personal service activity and the taxpayer materially participated in that activity in any 3 prior years. 7. Based on all of the facts and circumstances, the taxpayer participates in the activity on a regular, continuous, and substantial basis during such year.

If BC continues to operate as a sole proprietorship with the expected income and expenses, the business income and expenses would be included on your personal return and taxed at the 35% rate, resulting in $56,000 income taxes owed. If BC were incorporated and paid out 70,000 to yourself, this would result in corporate income taxes owed of $18,850. As you can see, a considerable tax savings is available if BC is taxed at the corporate level, rather than on your individual
Medicare’s Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) is the means by which provider entities bill Medicare for services rendered on behalf of Medicare beneficiaries. A variation of the traditional fee for service model, it’s a combination of weighted sets of data, legislated percentages and the Diagnostic Related Group (DRG). It attempts to (as equitably as possible) control costs while providing suitable financial compensation for the providers involved. Medicare does not pay the exact dollar amount each provider bills for. It’s a retrospective payment system that reimburses a percentage of the claim billed by the provider.
