How Cardiac Rehabilitation Can Save You Money

Clinical research has confirmed that cardiac rehabilitation improves the health of heart patients, thus cutting down on their healthcare costs.

Research shows that people who participate in cardiac rehab after a heart attack can reduce their risk of death from a future heart attack. Patients with coronary artery disease or heart failure can also benefit from a cardiac rehab program.

The benefits of cardiac rehabilitation include:

  •  a reduced risk of major health problems and death after a heart attack

  • decreased severity of angina

  • reduced need for hospitalization as a result of heart problems

  • reduced visits to the emergency room

  • decreased blood pressure

  • ability to exercise longer

  • lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels

  • decreased emotional stress and anxiety


Because there is a reduced need for care, costs for doctors visits, emergency room visits,  and hospitalization are also reduced, which saves patients money. Also, research shows that many patients see a decreased need for medications to control angina after participating in cardiac rehab.
