There is a lack of pulmonary rehabilitation programs across the country to provide adequate care to all the patients with pulmonary deficits. In addition, due to the pulmonary deficits seen in many patients post SARS-CoV-2 infection, as well as the limitation in the number of outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation centers, many outpatient physical therapy clinics are creating programs designed to treat patients with pulmonary disease. Due to the fragility of these patients, clinicians are seeking further education for the management guidelines for this patient population. This course will discuss the purpose of pulmonary rehabilitation, specific Medicare requirements for pulmonary rehabilitation, staffing, examples of structured programs, billing, and logistics. This course will provide answers to frequently asked questions and will include information on telehealth, home health, and other patients with pulmonary disease who do not meet Medicare requirements for pulmonary rehabilitation. After this course, clinicians will have the necessary information to be able to start programs in their clinics.
