I am a researcher working on a grant to develop a backup to PR, because there are barriers that are preventing the majority of COPD population from the benefits of a PR program. I would like to understand from actual folks with COPD, what do you think the barriers are, and what you think is the biggest reason you, or others are unable to do a PR program? The three main barriers that have been communicated to me so far are:
1- access (i.e. physically not available in your area)
2- Insurance reimbursement/coverage
3- Backlog/ too much need, not enough available service (so access is not an option, but new patients still cannot gain access in a reasonable amount of time)
