The intensive programs include exercise and education that is individualized for each patient. These programs are covered by most private insurances, HMOs and Medicare. This coverage would be verified prior to beginning the program. Physician referral is required.
A follow up program of medically supervised maintenance exercise is also available. This is a self pay program.
