Are wellness coaching sessions a covered benefit on average medical insurance plans? Does anyone know the ICD 9/10 CPT codes for wellness or lifestyle coaching services and if a certified weight management consultant meets the criteria for a provider of these services? Also looking for where to look for these answers… thank you!
Thank you for the info and suggestions. I appreciate it! I am not yet certified, but planning on going the ACE Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant route. Hoping insurance reimbursement would be a selling point for offering services. Maybe it will be more common one day soon! Good luck to everyone on this path and thanks again!
Who are you certified through as a wellness coach?

I have a few clients that their insurance pays for Personal Training as well as health club dues. This is primarily based on their insurance company/provider if they decide to pay for this type of service.
If a client can get a prescription from their physician for service/s, that would be a good start.
I Hope This Helps!
Hi Heather. These are excellent questions but I think you will be better served by going directly to the health insurer that you’re interested in becoming a network provider for. Each insurance company is different (e.g. has different credentialing requirements, different programs etc.). Good luck!
