The Future of Medical Exercise Training: Understanding Insurance Reimbursement
As we stride into the next two decades, the landscape of medical exercise training (MET) is poised for remarkable growth, and a key driver of this expansion will be insurance reimbursement. This evolving trend is not just a prediction but a reality we're witnessing today. More and more clients are receiving insurance coverage for MET services, through private insurance, or even via health savings accounts. This shift is monumental, signaling a new era where MET is increasingly recognized and valued within the health, wellness, and insurance sectors.
But with great opportunity comes great responsibility. Navigating the complexities of insurance reimbursement requires not just knowledge, but a deep understanding of the procedures, ethical standards, and legalities involved. This is where our Medical Exercise Program Director (MEPD) Training Series steps in as a game-changer.
Why MEPD Training...
The Medical Exercise Training Institute (METI) is 29 years old!! Yes, we started the medical exercise/post-rehab movement with the Medical Exercise Specialist workshop and certification in 1994. 13 students attended that first course. Since we have trained Medical Exercise Specialists on six continents around the world.
We watched post-rehab fitness grow into medical exercise training and witnessed the birth of our new profession. We owe all of our success to the amazing Medical Exercise Specialists (MES), Post Rehab Conditioning Specialists (PRCS), and Medical Exercise Program Directors (MEPD) we met along this 29-year journey. Thank you for all you have done to build this new profession and the support you have given METI. You made us look good by providing great service to your clients and developing relationships with medical professionals. You proved medical exercise training WORKS!!

Medical Exercise Specialists do you dread the idea of writing down each and every exercise, set, and rep in your client’s training session? Do you hate the idea of writing letters to physicians, therapists or insurance carriers? If you said yes, then you should attend the Medical Exercise Training Documentation and Communication (MET DOC-COM) workshop beginning February 4th.
Medical Exercise Specialists and post rehab professionals will soon have to document every training session and communicate with medical professionals the client’s progress. At best, documentation and communication are challenging, boring, and sometimes a pain, but these are necessary skills every MES must have.

The Medical Exercise Specialist (MES) workshop and certification started in 1994 with its primary focus to education fitness professionals to manage the functional deficits remaining after physical and occupational therapy, and chiropractic concluded. The MES functions to identify functional deficits and develop exercise programs to enhance those deficits. The role is not to compete with medical professionals....but to do something that is not provided for the client after their discharge from licensed medical services.....improve their level of function.
The need for medical exercise training services will grow but let's make sure we stay focused on our role. MET will grow tremendously as insurance carriers cutback on physical, occupational therapy, chiropractic and other licensed medical services. Managing functional deficits with exercise is amazing.....it works if properly dosed and monitored. It's the magic elixir....it's the key to long term...
