Life coaching was a vehicle I decided I'd use to expand my income stream and not change my practice style as payers tighten our reimbursement.

The idea came out of a meeting with lawyers to determine what cash payments could I receive without coming close to insurance/CMS contracts.

in my second year the offering has improved my overall bottomline while not taxing or adding more than an hour a week to the work week on the whole. Moreover response ( just to existing patients) has been good in many ways even from people who do not sign up as members.

if anyone has questions about the set up, processes etc I'm happy to answer them.
