Action Alert: Ask Your Lawmakers to Support Access to CV Rehab
The ACC-supported Increasing Access to Cardiac Rehabilitation Act of 2021 is moving through Congress. This bipartisan legislation would expand patient access to critical cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation (rehab) services during a crucial time when treatments for medical conditions have been delayed or avoided during the COVID-19 pandemic. For patients with cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular and pulmonary rehab programs are proven to reduce the risk of a future cardiac event, reduce all-cause mortality by 25%, decrease hospitalizations and the use of medical resources, and improve health-related quality of life. Ask your members of Congress to cosponsor this legislation today. Take action here!
