Some Insurance Companies Support Membership Here
The Northfield Senior Center is recognized as a fitness club by many insurance companies for their wellness reimbursement programs available for persons between the ages of 50 & 65. Most of these programs, including those for Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medica, PreferredOne, and HealthPartners, require you to exercise 8-12 times each month in order to receive a financial reimbursement which would cover part of your membership costs. UCare does not offer a wellness reimbursement program, but instead, most UCare plans offer the Silver Sneaker membership. Most Medicare Supplemental Insurance plans qualify for either a Silver & Fit or Silver Sneakers membership with the Senior Center. Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medica, and HealthPartners insurance plans qualify one for the Silver & Fit program. Silver & Fit enrollees have full membership to the Senior Center at the Gold level. A Silver & Fit enrollee may “upgrade” this membership to the Platinum level for $170/yr. UCare and some Humana policies offer a Silver Sneakers membership to the Senior Center at the Platinum level. Not all insurance plans from these companies will cover the wellness exercise programs. Your Insurance Customer Service or Senior Center staff can help determine if you are eligible and help you fill out the necessary enrollment forms. MEDICAL USE with a doctor’s referral for persons under the age of 50 is available. Long Term is $480/year or $40/month. Short Term is $7/open use, $9/pool or fitness class
