Some education topics you can expect to learn:

- Learn about managing cardiac disease risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, etc.
Salem Health’s cardiac rehab program is one of the largest in Oregon and is accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
Most insurance and Medicare plans cover the initial phase of cardiac rehab. Contact your insurance provider to find out about coverage and applicable copays or coinsurance fees.
