I’m in talks with a recently graduated health coach about providing her service to my patients. She indicated a willingness to start for free, as she feels this is her calling to help others in her retirement. However, as the workload grows I’d want to compensate her. I’m interested in hearing the experiences of those of you offering health coaches.
How have others paid a health coach? Hourly? PMPM?
We don’t have enough volume to guarantee her hours, yet I feel she could be very valuable to a number of my patients dealing with weight loss in particular, as she has quite a personal success story.
How do you get buy-in from patients to communicate with a new person about their long-term health goals?
Any sample contracts/agreements to help other DPCs get started?
