We are seriously re-evaluating our relationship with AARP & AARP/United Healthcare due to their decision to drop "SilverSneakers" as a Wellness Program (paid in full) starting Jan. 2019.
As a senior enrolled in "SilverSneakers" we had access to gyms across the US. NOW they say we could pay 50% off of a regular membership at a single (w/limited access). That's actually a 100% increase!
Thought you all wanted to help seniors - physically & mentally?
2018 and our premiums go up and our fixed income goes down?
I am very interested in knowing why some states are getting bumped out while other states will continue to offer (paid in full) "SilverSneakers" memberships via AARP/United Healthcare?
One cannot even buy a "SilverSneakers" membership (out of pocket) it MUST be offered via a healthcare plan. CRAZY!!
So disappointed in AARP & United Healthcare.
Reason of review: SilverSneakers.
Preferred solution: Reinstate SilverSneakers for 2019 (by end of Oct 2018).
I didn't like: Dropped silversneakers in 2019.
