What's The Mission?
How The Tai Chi For Veterans Program Works
This is a federally funded program that pays instructors to teach Tai Chi classes to Veterans. The veterans get a referral from their doctor and get to take the class for free. The VA then pays the instructor for their service. The average payout currently is $35 per vet, per class! With a little bit of work, you can turn this into a great income while helping a severely underserved demographic.
The classes are not held in VA hospitals and have to be hosted in other locations. We are currently working to build our network of locations for instructors, but this would be something you would have to secure as an independent contractor. Qualified locations would include YMCA's, Senior Centers, Gyms, Community Centers, Parks, or Yoga Studios to name a few. There is one stipulation with the venue location; if the county VA medical center already offers Tai Chi in their facility, then the Veteran must attend that class. However, if it takes the Veteran an average of 30 minutes to drive to that VA facility, they would qualify to take outside classes hosted by you. If the VA medical center doesn't offer Tai Chi, then the distance is not an issue.
Our company TaijiFit holds the exclusive contract to build out the network for this program, and we work with Optum Health (the insurance provider) and the VA. This program falls under a new initiative called the Community Care Network, which is a health provider network the VA utilizes to give Veterans timely, high-quality care.
Our certification program (which also includes joining the network) is more about learning how to teach a class of individuals (to the VA guidelines) rather than teaching them a form of Tai Chi. You will learn how to teach Tai Chi, but again the emphasis is on the teaching method.
The program is entirely online with 1/2 consisting of pre-recorded modules, and the other half live lessons. This course is a 150-hour program which takes on average 45 days to complete. When you get certified through TaijiFit you also will be inputted into the Tai Chi for Veterans system to be recognized as a provider within the network. When veterans get referred within your county, your name and location will show up on a list for when they are searching out a class.
This is a brand-new program and we are in the beginning phases of building out the network. Not every county in every state is live yet, but the majority of the East Coast will be up and running by the beginning of 2020. Right now the states east of Texas don't have a go-live date. As we get more info on these areas, we will provide updates.
There is a $99 yearly renewal fee to keep your certification current.
