    I want to join silver snickers program at local fitness center? How do I go about getting signed up? I had neck surgery front and back in August. I need to go to fitness center to walk 1 mile every day until Dec 18 when I see the surgeon again then he will increase
    the actives I can do thank you for your help I looking forward to hearing from you soon

  • Michael J. Sharp

    Hi, my name is Mike, and I belong to Gottlieb Fitness center in Melrose Park IL. Can you tell me if this is part of the Mutually Well Fitness program. I want to find out which healthclubs take the Mutually Well plan.

  • Dorothy A Metcalf

    Why such a high cost for gym membership ($25/mo.). Silver Sneakers cost me $50/year. A membership at my gym is $30/month so $25 seems like no bargain. Hopefully, MoO can get on board with the Silver Sneakers program — a real affordable option for seniors at $50/year.

  • Dan Jennings

    Hi,
    My wife was asking about any benefits for fitness through our supplemental insurance with Omaha. So I checked for locations on the Wellness site in our area to see if it was worth it and all it does is search (spins). Is there no locations in Yakima, Washington for Mutually Well? She had several of her friends mentioned the silver snickers program and how very reasonable and how much they liked it. That is why she asked if our supplemental had something like that.
    Thanks for your time, Dan

      Also, here’s a tip. Anytime you feel your browser is lagging or having trouble, you can just hold down the CTRL key and F5, then release both. That will empty the cache memory (which can get quite large) and reload the page in any browser. It helps to keep things moving.

  • Denise Bendick

    I would like to join a program but the only available thing available on the Eastern shore of Virginia is the YMCA are they part of your program?

    • Bill Bronson

      Marym, I called Silver Sneakers at 866-584-7389. They said United World is not part of Silver Sneakers but that there are a few Medicare Supplement carriers that are.
      United World is a Mutual of Omaha company. Mutual of Omaha has a huge program they host called Mutually Well, at http://www.mutuallywell.com
      Mutually Well does cost monthly but it’s less than regular gym memberships and it allows you to go to your choice of places, so you can find places you like best.
      If you want it to be free, I would need to run a check for you to find a Medicare Supplement plan that includes Silver Sneakers.
      In order to help you further I need to know your age, state, and zip code. You may email me directly at wbronson@empowerbrokerage.com to keep that information private, or call me directly at 817-410-5820.
      I’m sure we can help you get what you want.

    • Bill Bronson

      Silver Sneakers is accepted at the YMCA, among many other fitness clubs like 24-Hour Fitness, LA Fitness, Anytime Fitness, Fit for Life, area rec centers and more. Here’s the map tool to help you. https://tools.silversneakers.com/LocationSearch
      However, Mutually Well does not show YMCA participating in that. Mutually Well has many more fitness centers available but YMCA is not one of them, that I can tell at this time.

  • Connie Oberlin

    When you join the mutually well program does that mean that you only pay the 25.00 and you can join the fitness center of your choice for that fee or is the 25.00 added on to your monthly premium and you still have to pay for fitness center?

    • Bill Bronson

      Connie, when you join Mutually Well for $25/month you get access to all of those fitness centers. No additional fees. It’s like joining a cheap gym but going anywhere you want. Just make sure the place is on the list and go. If you experience any issues with this, just ask us or call Mutually Well to get it corrected. But really you shouldn’t have problems. The program is very simple.

        • Bill Bronson

          Peggy, there’s not a monthly fee to find a place. There’s just the one monthly fee to use any of those places as much as you want. It’s cheaper than most gym memberships but lets you go anywhere in their network of over 10,000 facilities nationally. There could be 10 or more close to you for you to try out and go to whenever you like.

    • Bill Bronson

      Steven, Planet Fitness cost averages out to $15.66 a month according to their pricing structure. For that fee you get access to their facility, probably at any location. Mutually Well is a membership that would give you access to Planet Fitness as well as thousands of other facilities https://www.mutuallywell.com/locations plus 10% to 30% discounts on Massage, Acupuncture, Chiropractic care, and more. So it gives you access to a whole host of facilities, services, and discounts managed by the Mutual of Omaha network. Does that help answer your question?

  • larry lommel

    I am saving about $120 a year by using Mutually well vs my local LA fitness center membership. I would like to see my local LA fitness supported, and feel a little badly about making the change. I know most clubs make money from memberships. Does Mutually well pay based on my attendance at a local club? Does Mutually Well pay my center?

    • Bill Bronson

      They do get paid and I’m not sure why some decide not to join. Perhaps it’s because Mutually Well is so new that some may not have had time to make the decision to join it. I’m confident many more clubs will join. Now that it’s the first of a new year perhaps they will. I encourage you to visit http://www.mutuallywell.com to look at locations near you.

    • Bill Bronson

      YES 🙂
      Your Time Fitness is listed as a Silver Sneakers location in Clayton, GA.
      As is Clayton Health and Fitness and Dosher Physical Therapy Associates on Main Street.

  • Shelia Beu

    I would like to sign up for Silver Sneaker Program. Please advise how. I live in Littleton, Co.
    I have Medicare Supplement Plan F.

    • Bill Bronson

      David, yes the cost is higher than silver sneakers and some basic gym memberships because the program covers more and has more flexibility. The discounts on chiropractic, acupuncture, and other therapies, makes the program very compelling. However, it may not appeal to everyone. Thank you for your input.

  • Carol Appell

    I belong to the Kewanee, Il. YMCA. Does the does the program cover the Silver Sneakers at that YMCA. I know others that go they have the program. When I talked to staff there they said Mutual of Omaha was not covered there. Please let me know. I am a current member at the YMCA and participate in classes. Thank you for your help. Carol Appell

  • Dayle Brown

    I’m thinking of quitting Mutual of Omaha because it doesn’t offer Silver Sneakers. Most of my friends have a different supplement that does and their monthly payment for their coverage is the same as mine. I have had Omaha for many, many years and I hate to leave but I can’t afford gym or Y prices and many other insurances off Silver Sneakers.

    • Bill Bronson

      Im sorry to hear that. I was under the impression the only way to get silver sneakers was through a participating Medicare Advantage plan and not a Medicare Supplement. You may benefit from asking one of our Medicare Specialists a few questions. Just call them at 888-446-9157

  • Brodie Rudd

    Every fitness center in my area is listed except the one I’m a current member of…..the YMCA in Clemmons, NC. Any chance of that being added?

  • Loretta Adams

    Is Mutually Well somehow connected with Silver Sneakers? The Gym in Blairsville GA accepts Silver Sneakers but not Mutually Well. I have Mutual of Omaha insurance and I was rejected for Silver Sneakers.

    • Bill Bronson

      Silver Sneakers is normally only offered through a participating Medicare Advantage plan and not a Medicare Supplement. You may benefit from asking one of our Medicare Specialists a few questions. Just call them at 888-446-9157. You may have options. Let them know you spoke to Bill at the home office.

  • Lo

    The Gym in BlaIrsville GA is listed under Mutually Well but doesn’t seem know anything about it. Claim they have called for info but haven’t heard back from mutually well.
