Are All Medicare Recipients Eligible for the SilverSneakers Fitness Program?

As of 2015, the SilverSneakers fitness program is not available to all Medicare recipients, according to Healthways. SilverSneakers offers free gym membership to recipients of more than 65 different Medicare coverage plans.

SilverSneakers.com provides a map tool that allows Medicare recipients to search for their specific insurance plan by state to determine their eligibility for the program. Health insurance providers include Aetna Medicare, Humana, AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan and UnitedHealthcare, says Healthways.

The SilverSneaker customer service department advises potential members of eligibility as well and provides information about when new insurance plans are expected to become participating partners. Enrollment also includes access to an online community of other members.
