How do I become a patient in the Outpatient Cardiac Rehab Center? Back
Patients may be candidates for outpatient cardiac rehabilitation services if they have been diagnosed with a heart attack in the past 12 months, angioplasty and/or stent placement, heart valve repair or replacement, bypass surgery, heart transplant or a diagnosis of stable angina within the past the past 6 months.
A physician referral for cardiac rehabilitation services that identifies your cardiac diagnosis and date of onset is required. A referral can be faxed to our convenient outpatient facility:
Main Campus fax: (914) 597-2801 or (914) 798-4151
Prescriptions can be mailed to the main hospital campus or physically delivered in-person. Click here for directions.
Once a physician signed referral is received, we will conduct a medical and financial screening to determine insurance eligibility and financial coverage. The Burke Rehabilitation Hospital participates in a variety of insurance plans.(link) For more information about insurance-related issues, please call (914) 597-2206. Upon completion of the insurance verification we will contact the patient to schedule an appointment.
