Ornish Lifestyle Medicine is backed by more than 35 years of scientific research to reverse the progression of heart disease.
Traditional Cardiac Rehab
Traditional cardiac rehabilitation helps patients recover from heart disease, heart failure, heart surgery and peripheral arterial disease. Patients exercise in a medically supervised gym. They also are educated about their disease, the importance of eating a healthy diet and managing medications.
Both cardiac rehabilitation programs are covered by most private insurance and Medicare for qualifying individuals. Traditional cardiac rehab also is covered by Medicaid.
Referrals and Questions
Patients need a referral from their physician to participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program that is covered by private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. Self-pay options are available for Intensive Cardiac Rehab.
