What is “silver sneakers” all about and is it covered in full by Medicare?

SilverSneakers is not a benefit provided under Original Medicare. SilverSneakers is a company that some Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement insurance companies use to provide a supplemental fitness benefit to their members.

SilverSneakers is a health and fitness program designed for adults 65+. If your Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement plan offers SilverSneakers benefits, they can include the following:

  • Go to thousands of gyms, community centers, and other participating fitness locations across the nation.
  • Take fun exercise classes designed for seniors of all fitness levels and led by trained instructors.
  • Access an on-demand video library of classes and workouts.
  • Download the SilverSneakers G.O. app to get your digital membership card and workouts (free, iOS, and Android).
  • Find a friendly, supportive community in person and online.

Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement insurance companies may also offer supplemental fitness benefits through other companies than SilverSneakers.
