One of the reasons why a person would need to visit a hospital such as HealthSouth is if he or she needed to undergo cardiac rehabilitation following a stroke or heart attack, reports WebMD. Cardiac rehabilitation is a journey that teaches patients about the different lifestyle and exercise choices that can lead to a healthier heart. The program also involves working out on site so that the staff can monitor the way that the patient's heart is responding to treatment. Most of the time insurance will cover these types of programs if the heart condition is or was considered severe enough.
