Beginning January 1, 2020, doctors will be able to prescribe health and wellness coaching. Under the Category III Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes approved by the American Medical Association (AMA), health and wellness coaching prescribed by a physician may be eligible for medical reimbursement with certain types of insurance.
NutriFit founder Jackie Keller, is one of the elite coaches with the required National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBHWC) certification awarded with the Category III CPT codes.
Mastering health and the confidence to sustain wellness is a journey of personal growth. Health and wellness coaching is founded on coaching psychology, a new and fast-growing field dedicated to the enhancement of well being and generating more meaning, satisfaction and positive emotion in life.
As a certified health and wellness coach, Jackie conducts one-on-one sessions during which clients set achievable goals in six wellness areas: fitness, weight, nutrition, stress, health, and the life issues that impact health. Along the path of change, you will create solutions to overcome obstacles. This helps you build confidence and energizes you to maintain new behavior patterns.
Jackie guide clients in mindful thinking and building confidence and helps clients define a higher purpose for wellness. By drawing a personal wellness blueprint, Jackie will show clients how to harness the strengths needed to overcome obstacles. Coach and client will build a support team, inspiring and challenging clients to go beyond what they might be able to do alone. By the end of three months, clients typically reach 80% of their first priority goals, and more than 70% of their second priority three-month goals.
Coaching sessions can be conducted in-person, by phone or via video conferencing.
