You need to check your policies.. I know some of them are replacing Silver Sneakers with a different plan...because of this kind of thing (and this is happening in various parts of the country).  Please note that, at least in Green Bay, WI having Silver Sneakers to use the Y next year is useless.  Please read this carefully all the way down to the faq regarding UHC's replacement for SS:

I guess that AARP will hear a loud SWISH as members drop United Health Care insurance.

I'm glad I'm not the only one upset about this change in coverage!

I found the list of providers on a drop down menu on Silver Sneakers. I'm upset also about this drop in service! I like Zumba at one gym and water aerobics at another. This has me fuming!

Thanks! Your link to the SS web site was very helpful. In Oklahoma, UHC has dropped SS for all their offering except the Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans. The same is true of Blue Cross, Coventry and Humana. I will have to explore that option and figure out if the coverage is as good as my Part B plan F coverage plus Part D.
