I also belong to Silver Sneakers though Humana Gold, which is a Medicare Advantage Plan. I love the plan and enjoy Curves. I an also use our community gym or the YMCA if I choose. I only go to Curves though. I just completed 700 workouts in 4 years.

I received my Silver Sneakers card through Humana as well, and after reading the info in this thread, I'll try my best to go three days a week. It seems like such a great little program :)

Aarp also pays for memberships. It is a great program, too bad more people don't take advantage of it : )

My club owner said the same- they get paid when the members actually show up. It is through an insurance company. I love the idea, of promoting proactive health maintenance!
Enjoy!

The owner of my Curves says she is paid $4 each time someone on Silver Sneakers comes in to exercise. She said she can't use it in her advertising except to say she does take Silver Sneakers people.

That is GREAT, and I hope she is able to take advantage of it, and getting to car pool is even better.
emoticon If I understand it right, the Silver Sneakers program only pays the Curves Owner for the days that you actually show up. That could be extra motivation, maybe? If you don't work out, Curves doesn't get paid.

That's great, I hope she takes advantage of it. I know we have a number of ladies at my club that do.
I'm too young, not by much, but I have never been able to get any satisfactory information about the program.

My friend was interested in going to Curves but is on a very limited budget. Our local Curves offers Silver Sneakers which will cover the cost for her. I think it is through either Humana or Medicare and pays for it totally. We could even car pool which would save on gas since we both live about 15 miles from town.
