Medicare Coverage for SilverSneakers
SilverSneakers is not covered by Original Medicare Parts A and B because it is a basic fitness service. Medicare Advantage plans, aka Medicare Part C, may, however, provide coverage. Contact your health plan directly for coverage details or visit SilverSneakers.
