making sense of insurance
Benefits with the y

First off, we get it.
Understanding the Medicare maze is difficult -- even for us.

But, what we do understand, is the value of having you as Members of our Y.  So, please take a moment to read through a hopefully understandable explanation of what's going on with some of the plans.  If this still doesn't make sense, please talk to the Membership Director at your favorite branch.  Together, you can find answers without any disruption of your activities at the Y.



  • AARP  will not be covering Silver Sneakers as of January 1, 2019.
  • AARP as a new plan called: Health Your Way.
  • Health Your Way means that you will be responsible for paying 50% of the Older Adult or Older Adult Couple rate.  Currently, this means that you'd have this fee per month: 

        Older Adult (Age 65 or older):      $17.64 plus tax/per month

        Older Adult Couple                         $23.95 plus tax/month

Financial assistance -- from the Y --  is available to assist with payment of the 50% that is now your responsibility    

NOTE:  This is not a Y thing, but an AARP thing.
