Can I Get a Medicare Plan That Covers a Health Club Membership?
Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, does not cover any of the costs associated with gym memberships or fitness programs. However, there are other Medicare plan options that may cover the cost of a gym membership.
Medicare Advantage plans must offer at least the same amount of coverage as Original Medicare (besides hospice care, but that’s still covered under Medicare Part A), and may also offer additional benefits. These extra benefits could include gym membership. If you sign up for a Medicare Advantage plan, you’re still in the Medicare program and need to continue paying your Medicare Part B premium, as well as any premium the Medicare Advantage plan may charge.
On the other hand, Medicare Supplemental plans do not typically include fitness membership.
Because these Medicare plan options are offered through private, Medicare-approved insurance companies, their availability and benefits may differ by location. You may want to compare plans to see if one in your area offers coverage for health club membership costs.
