What is Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac rehab is a multi-faceted treatment program that helps people manage a variety of cardiovascular health conditions. It consists of safe, progressive exercise training, tailored to each individual’s ability; education about therapeutic life changes, such as smoking cessation and maintaining (and even enjoying!) a heart-healthy diet; and stress management. Cardiac rehab can be provided in both outpatient and inpatient facilities.

According to both the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, cardiac rehab is an vital component of recovery from heart disease or heart surgery. Studies consistently show that cardiac rehab reduces the risk of future heart problems in people with a variety of heart conditions, as well as lowering overall risk of death from heart disease.

Would I Benefit from Cardiac Rehab?

Cardiac rehab benefits those who have suffered from:


Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

Heart attack (also known as a myocardial infarction)

Heart failure

Heart procedures, such as:

   Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts (CABG)

   Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)

   Pacemaker Implantation
   Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (also known as PCI or angioplasty)

   Stent Placement

   Valve Replacement

Does Insurance Cover Cardiac Rehab?

Most insurers, including Medicare, cover the conditions listed above, though they might request a referral from your doctor. In the case of heart failure, cardiac rehab coverage is generally dependent on the extent to which the heart is incapable of pumping blood.

When Should I Start Cardiac Rehab?

Depending on your medical condition, cardiac rehab may start while you are still in the hospital. In other cases, it may begin a week or more after you are discharges.

How Long is Does Cardiac Rehab Take?

Because your program is tailored to your specific needs, the length of cardiac rehab will vary. However, most programs last no longer than three months. Depending on your condition, you may be able to take part in an intensive program that lasts only one or two weeks, or you may benefit from a program that extends beyond three months.
