Yes, agree, and one other thing people might like to know. they are limiting how many replies get posted so it appears that not a lot of interest....thats a lie. Everyone I talk to that has insurance through UHC/AARP, is unhappy about the loss of Silver Sneakers benefit, but word isn't getting out though this medium. You need to go to facebook and instragram and post there for people to here.

  1. 100% agree!!!!  Bring back Silver Sneakers or find another insurer who will!!!!!  Just to note, they are making this website hard to use so not as many responses will get through, shame on AARP and on UHC both.

AGREE!!! The new wellness program called HealthYourWay only pays one half of the enrollment fee and is not usable when traveling. A big loss and I also intend to look for other coverage in October 2019

The new plan is called HealthYourWay and it only pays for one half the cost of enrollment and not user friendly at centers when traveling.  The loss of Silver Sneakers is a big loss at the same time they  raised the monthly cost.    I intend to look for other coverage in October, suggest you do the same and let your friends know about the Silver Sneakers loss.

The new wellness plan with United Health Care (AARP)  .....sucks!!! They call it HealthYourWay, but it only pays for half the cost of enrollment and isn't accepted everywhere when traveling like Silver Sneakers.    A real loss...

 

I have the most expensive plan they have and they are taking away benfilts....Silver Sneakers is a good wellness benefit and I definitely will look at other plans in October before I renew with UHC and AARP.  Please post to facebook, instragram and other social networks so others will know about this loss of benefits.

So this is the response of AARP & United Healthcare....

 

AARP Medicare Advantage plans insured by United Healthcare will be offered the program called Renew Active, formerly Optum Fitness Advantage.

 

AARP Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) plans insured by United Healthcare are offered the program called Health Your Way.

 

If AARP was really looking out for us they would have told United Healthcare the removal of silver sneakers was a deal breaker for recommendation but NO AARP did nothing in my view. If you also look at the Rx rteceommendation through Optum Rx you will find similiar tactics in the drug coverages.....I have complained to AARP and it looks like the only resolution is to change at open enrollment.....shame on me for not doing a better due diligence on these underhanded tactics but I mistakenly thought AARP had my back. WRONG AGAIN.....

AARPTeri,

While that is a good informative response from this membership organization, I believe they should go one step further and explain that the benefit which will be offered from UHC will be determined by what type of AARP Branded Medicare plan from UHC which they have.

 

AARP Medicare Advantage plans insured by United Healthcare will be offered the program called Renew Active, formerly Optum Fitness Advantage.

 

AARP Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) plans insured by United Healthcare are offered the program called Health Your Way.

 

Sometimes beneficiaries aren't given this detail and it is confusing to them when they try to get information - their plan makes the difference in how the UHC rep describes their optional health and wellness benefit.
