Have you decided to quit your day job and become a coach?
A burgeoning new advice industry has emerged. Former, or even current, athletes are now designers of athletic–and sometimes even life–programs for the over-acheiving mind-set. It is a good gig. You can sleep late, and save your legs by working primarily at a computer, or a coffee shop, perhaps. People will pay you for your expertise and advice–with their money, not their insurance company’s money. So there is no need for a coder, appeals coordinator or collection agency. Moreover, there is little danger of billing fraud.
But now you have competition. It seems Harvard Medical School has entered the foray.
Maybe this is because Harvard faculty have suffered from enhanced restrictions in their financial ties to industry. Or, maybe it is because they are really smart. They see that many will pay to hear the obvious.
Here are some of their advertised features:
