If you are a Florida resident who is eligible for Medicare, you may be wondering if your plan includes Silver Sneakers. Silver Sneakers is a nationwide gym membership program that offers seniors access to fitness facilities at a discounted rate.
Many Florida Medicare plans include Silver Sneakers as part of their benefits package, but it is important to check with your specific plan to be sure.
Currently, Silver Sneakers is not a benefit offered under Original Medicare (Part A & B).
If your plan doesn’t include Silver Sneakers, you may be able to add the program for a small monthly fee through a private Medicare insurance policy, such as a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) or a Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap). Silver Sneakers offers access to more than 15,000 gyms and health clubs nationwide, so you are sure to find one that is convenient for you.
The Silver Sneakers program has many benefits for seniors. It can help improve your strength, flexibility and mobility, which can help you stay healthy and independent. The program also offers social opportunities, which can be important for older adults.
