Do Medicare Supplements cover the cost of a gym membership?

Have you ever overheard someone talking about Silver Sneakers and wondered what they were referring to? 

Most of the major insurance companies that offer a Medicare Supplement plan come with wellness coverage.  The most talked about coverage is called Silver Sneakers.  This wellness coverage will get you a discount at a gym and / or aerobic classes.  Some companies will even provide 100% coverage for these memberships.

Anthem, Humana, Aetna, and Medical Mutual are a few that have Silvers Sneakers as part of their wellness program.  United Health Care also offers a wellness program that works the same way however their program is called Renew Active.  Many gyms will honor either of these benefits, all you have to do is ask.

Often, these perks are included with Medicare Advantage Plans.  More on that coming soon!
