If you are medically disabled, you may qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits.

In a report from Health Day, new research finds that less than 50% of coronary artery disease patients are receiving drug therapy.

Drug therapy is beneficial to many patients who undergo surgery to have a stent placed in a coronary artery. It can help prevent future cardiovascular problems. However despite the benefits, most patients are not put under this optimal type of medical therapy.

This type of therapy includes aspirin, statin drugs to reduce cholesterol and beta blocker medication. It has been shown to help patients long-term. Researchers indicate that ideally most patients who are to undergo a stenting procedure should be given this drug therapy in order to see if there is improvement in their symptoms. 

You should know that most claimants who apply for Social Security disability benefits are initially denied. However you can increase your chances at a favorable outcome with the help of a Bronx Social Security disability attorney.

An attorney will explain the process, what documentation you will need and how to substantiate your claim of a medical disability. You should consult with a Bronx Social Security disability attorney today, in order to learn about your legal rights.
