Medicare Fitness Plans
Access Fitness Programs and Gym Memberships Through SilverSneakers and Medicare
Some Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement (Medigap) programs offer free gym memberships to help keep you active, healthy, and fit. Gym memberships are notoriously expensive. Coupled with other out-of-pocket healthcare expenses, deductibles, and co-pays, it might be financially prohibitive to pursue this avenue.
