  3. Program advantage: Have a clear view of benefits and programs a Health & Wellness Coach can bring to your practice and patients.
  4. Prior experience: Consider how much health-related background experience suits your needs.
  5. Billing model:  There are many different billing models.  Consider which ones suit your clinic and patient needs.
  6. Values:  Working as part of a team is fundamental to the success of any Health and Wellness Coaching Program.
