I offer a 1 free session with people to broaden my possible scope of clients. At the end usually the only problem is the price. Do you know if some health insurance companies cover Personal Trainers? I’m fairly certain the demand for PT’s would go up as a whole if people had the option to pay with their medical insurance.
If you’re looking for some solid business-building information, there’s a great site at www.TheSixFigureTrainer.com
There’s a lot of good information. I emailed the guy and he was really nice in emailing me back and giving me some great advice.
According to me its all depend on insurance companies TOC. if you want more information about this topic you can read the detail here http://carinsuranceseeks.com/
Many health insurers are offering this type of thing these days.
As competition gets more aggressive they are always looking for ways to differentiate themselves from each other and the whole health and wellness concept is very much a key focus for them as they want to be seen to look after your health.
A lot of them such as Vitality Health and Life in the UK offer this backed up by incentives for staying healthy and being able to prove it for example filling out questionnaires, etc. I think I read somewhere this really worked for them as it meant it attracted many of the fitter and healthier people to their company which obviously made a big difference to claims.
Some of the big International Health and Life Insurers are good for this as well as they are less limited in some cases in which ones you can use for example www.intl-medical-insurance.com
I would really suggest just shop around until you find one which works for you with the right network of personal trainers you want to deal with.
I suspect you may pay a premium for some of these however this will be up to you whether you are ok with this or not.
Good luck anyway
Don’t believe the people who say insurance does not pay for personal training. YES they do. The insurance companies actually prefer to pay a personal trainer than chiropractor or physical therapist, why you ask: because it is cheaper.
Granted each state is regulated differently but nationally certified personal trainers can accept insurance. To all of those who doubt this…GOOGLE is your friend do some research.
Glad I stumbled on this, I’m wondering the same thing. I’m post op gastric bypass 3yrs out and really need some direction on exercise. I have a new doctor and nutritionist, but i have no clue what i’m doing with exerise! It would be great if insurance covered a personal trainer, I would take advantage of it for sure!
