Fitness Membership Benefits

For Value, Rewards, Classic and Secure Medicare Advantage Plans

If you are enrolled in one of our Health First Health Plans Medicare Advantage insurance plans, a fitness facility membership is included at no additional cost! This benefit is a great value, helping to keep every member engaged in fitness, socially involved with other health-minded individuals and encouraging them to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

Offering options that best fit your lifestyle

Health First Health Plans is working with American Specialty Health Fitness, Inc., offering you two options for our fitness membership benefit. These robust fitness options available through the Silver&Fit® Exercise & Healthy Aging Program include the Silver&Fit Home Fitness Program or the Silver&Fit Fitness Facility Program. With the choices available to you, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and achieving fitness goals just got easier.

We listened to our members, and many of you asked for a fitness program that you could do at home. So we are now offering a option — the Silver&Fit Home Fitness Program.

Silver&Fit Home Fitness Program

If you select this option, you can exercise in the privacy and convenience of your own home. That means no driving to a gym to accomplish your fitness goals. No worries about showing up at specific times of the day for fitness classes. No skipping your routine if the weather is bad. Create your own exercise plan, wherever you want it to be. Change it up as often as you’d like.

How can you stay fit at home? It’s easy! For starters, you can view the 48 online Healthy Aging Education Classes on the Silver&Fit website (SilverandFit.com), or you can request to receive them by DVD in the mail. It’s just like being in a class — only you get to choose the location.

The Silver&Fit Home Fitness Program also offers a choice of 17 Home Fitness Kits, which cover the topics listed below. You can choose up to two fitness kits each benefit year to incorporate into your fitness routine.

  • Aquatic Exercise
  • Chair Resistance Band Strength
  • High Intensity Workout II
  • Cardio Strength
  • Chair Tai Chi
  • Stress Management
  • Chair Aerobics for Everyone

  • Chair Boxing
  • Exercise for the Bedridden and Physically Challenged
  • Tai Chi for Balance (Intermediate)
  • Chair Dancing
  • High Intensity Workout I
  • Walking
  • Chair Pilates

Silver&Fit Fitness Facility Program

Many members prefer to go to a fitness facility to conduct their fitness regimen. The Silver&Fit Fitness Facility Program includes a range of options that offer facilities throughout the nation. You can select one of the many participating fitness facilities.

To search our nationwide network of participating fitness facilities or nominate one for consideration, visit SilverandFit.com or call the toll-free customer service hotline at 1.888.797.7806.

Some members may want to continue using their existing fitness facility. If the fitness facility is in the Silver&Fit network, you should inform the facility’s staff that you are eligible for the Silver&Fit program and present your fitness card. If the fitness facility is not in the Silver&Fit network, you will need to switch to a Silver&Fit fitness facility for a no-cost membership.

If you enroll by phone, the welcome letter, which includes the name and location of the selected fitness facility, will be mailed within five days. If you enroll online, you can download and print your welcome letter immediately.

You can change your fitness facility of choice once per month. Visit SilverandFit.com or call the toll-free customer service hotline at 1.888.797.7806 to switch designated facilities. When you initiate this change, the effective date for attending the new fitness facility will be the first day of the following month.
