SilverSneakers is a versatile and free fitness plan for Medicare recipients. Not every insurance company that has 医疗保险的优势 or other Medicare Supplement 保险 plans has SilverSneakers as a choice. But it’s definitely worth asking about whenever you add or change your coverage.

Remember, though, that not all plans offer SilverSneakers. Communicate carefully when doing your research and make a selection that covers your needed treatments and prescriptions first.
