Client Practitioner Empowerment: Insurance Basics To Serve You And Your Clients with Jenn Malecha

So many people feel stuck in their health because they don’t feel like they have options. They feel as though they are hand-cuffed by their insurance, worry about expenses and overall just feel dis-empowered asking their doctors to run the test that they want. This workshop is designed to educate practitioners and clients about their choices when it comes to taking ownership of their health. It will give participants guidance on how they can become more empowered in their options, whether that means changing their insurance coverage to have more flexibility, just being confident in asking their doctors to run the test they want or finding a health practitioner that will work for them and not against them. By the end of the workshop participants will have a better sense of how to be their own advocate and to feel empowered in the “system.”

Learning Objectives:

  • Empowering yourself and your clients to trust that you know your body and what you need
  • How to take a stand and not get lost in the healthcare system
  • Understanding your health insurance options and how to make them work for you
  • Finding a health practitioner to partner with that works for you and not against you
