What Is Heart Failure?

Heart failure is a very common condition. About 5.7 million people in the United States have heart failure.

Heart failure does not mean that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working. It means your heart is not able to pump blood the way it should. Heart failure can affect one or both sides of the heart.

Our registered nurses in our heart failure Disease Management (DM) program can help you understand your diagnosis and how to manage it. We provide one–on–one education, tools and resources to help improve your quality of life.

Our heart failure DM program is open to West Region beneficiaries ages 18–64.
