The Silver&Fit Program Offers New Fitness and Well-being Benefits through Medicare Advantage Plans During This Open Enrollment Season

SAN DIEGO, CA – October 13, 2022 – The Silver&Fit® Healthy Aging and Exercise Program, a popular fitness program provided through many Medicare Advantage plans, provides Medicare beneficiaries more options for getting fit and staying fit in 2023. The program already provides members access to 15,000+ standard and 5,000+ premium fitness centers. Offerings include national name brand chains, YMCAs, and boutique fitness studios. For those who prefer to work out at home, the program provides more than 8,600 on-demand exercise videos, including cycling, dance, Pilates, cardio, strength, yoga, HIIT, and meditation. Members can also schedule phone, video, or chat sessions with a certified health coach to support their lifestyle, nutrition, stress, sleep, or exercise goals. Other features include the ability to personalize workout plans and choose a 14-day exercise program that best fits the member’s needs. Through the Silver&Fit Connected!™ program, members can monitor and track their steps and activity via a variety of wearable fitness trackers or apps, then earn rewards for their steps and activity.

Starting in 2023, members of the Silver&Fit program will have access to the Silver&Fit Well Being Club, a social club resource network through which members can learn new skills by joining live-streaming classes and events. There will also be an enhanced offering of 11 home fitness kits, such as a Pilates kit that includes gear like a Pilates ball and towel; strength training kits with dumbbells and exercise bands; and yoga kits with yoga blocks and straps.

“We’re very proud to be offering new program features for millions of Medicare-eligible Americans as part of our 15th anniversary,” said George DeVries, chairman and CEO of American Specialty Health Incorporated (ASH), which launched the Silver&Fit program in 2007. “More than 4.9 million people in the United States are eligible to participate in the Silver&Fit program, and of the members we serve, we are honored that they give us high marks, with a 97% satisfaction rating. We hope to further improve that score in 2023 with the rollout of these truly valuable benefits to help members age in even more healthy ways.”
