Cardiac rehabilitation

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)

 covers these programs if you’ve had at least one of these conditions:

  • A heart attack in the last 12 months
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Current stable angina (chest pain)
  • A heart valve repair or replacement
  • A coronary angioplasty (a medical procedure used to open a blocked artery) or coronary stent (a procedure used to keep an artery open)
  • A heart or heart-lung transplant
  • Stable chronic heart failure

Part B also covers intensive cardiac rehabilitation programs that are usually more rigorous or more intense than regular cardiac rehabilitation programs. Medicare covers services in a doctor's office or 

hospital outpatient setting

 (including a critical access hospital).
