Are you still suffering from shortness of breath related to previous COVID-19 infection?

Beginning January 1, 2022, Medicare will cover pulmonary rehabilitation for individuals who’ve had confirmed or suspected COVID-19 and continue to experience persistent shortness of breath for at least four weeks. Neither hospitalization nor a positive COVID-19 test are required for program participation.

Pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to help increase strength, endurance, and overall health through exercise, education, diet, and support while decreasing patients’ shortness of breath.

Ask your physician for a referral to CSSMCW’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation program. Our experienced and caring therapists can help you take control of your breathing.
