Health Insurance Coverage and Ornish
Ornish Lifestyle Medicine is so effective that Medicare and many other insurers now cover it under intensive cardiac rehabilitation. It is the first program designed to heal both body and spirit to earn this substantial backing.
You can qualify for coverage if you have experienced any of the following:
- Heart attack within the last 12 months
- CAGB (coronary artery bypass) surgery
- Chest pain or discomfort from coronary heart disease (stable angina, or angina pectoris)
- Heart valve surgery (repair or replacement)
- Coronary stenting or balloon angioplasty (cardiac interventional procedures)
- Heart transplant or heart-lung transplant
