What Medicare plans cover Silver Sneakers?

Although Silver Sneakers is considered a basic fitness service, it is NOT covered under Original Medicare (Part A & B). Many Medicare Advantage plans, known as Medicare Part C, may provide this benefit. Although uncommon, some Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans include fitness benefits too.

In order to see if your current Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement plan includes the Silver Sneakers program, or to sign up for Silver Sneakers, please contact your health plan directly, or contact one of our certified healthcare experts at (866) 817-5270 .
