I am moving to Florida and United Health care don't support Silver Sneakers there. I just joined a wonderful YMCA only to find out that as soon as I become a resident I will lose it.AARP should bring some pressure on United Health care to include this in all states, not just a select few.

MAYBE IF EVERYBODY WOULD SWITCH TO HUMANA INSURANCE, UNITED HEALTHCARE WOULD WAKE UP AND RECONSIDER OFFERING THE SILVER SNEAKERS PLAN.

I live in Alabama and have been enjoying a free membership at the YMCA which is a wonderful gym and pool for the last 2 years.  I just got a letter from AARP (United Healthcare) saying they were no longer going to offer Silver Sneakers in Alabama.  I'm really upset that they are so ignorant not to realize the preventative health care is well worth their paying for gym memberships.   Humana Supplementary Insurance does support the Silver Sneakers program here in my city so I'm seriously thinking about switching over to them!

Big zip code big Perks. Little zip code no Perks. I am paying more for plan November than others pay for plan For yet they get free membership to YMCA as Perks. What makes me less deserving to be healthy? Shame on you AARP/United Health

Where are the gyms in Lubbock, Texas that recognize AARP membership free?

I am covered in NJ for Silver Sneakers.  I would love a Zimba, that isn't so fast.  I love fast dancing but, I rather go slow.  Love the R&B, that would be soooo sexy

On a second note it covers some supplemental plan members in certain states.  I live in Oregon and it is not covered here unless you are an advantage plan member.  I don't know why, can anyone enlighten me.  I would like to be able to go to a gym.  Again Pooey.

Doesnt cover the gym membership.  Looks like for the high price you pay that they dont offer silver sneakers anymore for the medicare supplement plan.  I am extremely disappointed.  Their is another type called silver and fit, but they don't have that either. Pooey

Bravo for calling out Silver Sneakers for not being much good for seniors.  I too am totally frustrated because Silver Sneakers has declined to support my membership at my incredable YMCA, which is closest to my home and totally senior and community responsive.  What I have learned, so far, is that Silver Sneakers only honors two gyms, convenient to my home  -- one of which is a Gold's Gym, incredibly overcrowded and filled with young jocks, who carelessly walk around with large weights on their shoulders and think that the "f" word is an adjective, and a Curves gym, which is simply too silly for words.  I have also been informed that my local YMCA was declined membership in the Silver Sneakers program because it is in too close proximity to the two forementioned gyms.  There is no such thing as a freebee and those of us who pay for health services through AARP and United Health Care are entitled to better and more appropriate gym services than the current designated Silver Sneakers gyms in my area.  As an educated senior and one who will settle for nothing less than appropriate ROI for my investment in United Health Care, I am committed to pursuing this issue until Silver Sneakers provides me with a gym close to my home that is truly appropriate to my needs and I urge everyone else to do the same.
