Can Health Coaching Be Covered By Insurance?
Health Insurance covers Health Coaching?
Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum Notable Quotes
“A coach is your health advocate. A coach will be your cheerleader, will help you change when change is hard.”
– Dr. Sandi Scheinbaum
As health coaches, we’ve got a lot waiting for us on the horizon—and it’s not just the demand for our services. For instance, imagine having your coaching services covered by insurance. Sure, it may put a cap on what you can charge, but just think about the multitude of people who suddenly have access to you and your services! No doubt about it, it opens a ton of new doors not just for you, but also for your potential clients.
In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to Dr. Sandi Scheinbaum, CEO and co-founder of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, to talk about all the great opportunities for health coaches.
