You may be eligible for a YMCA membership with a qualifying Medicare Advantage Plan! Here are the details.

At the Y, there are no strangers – only friends you haven’t met yet. While you improve your health and mobility through our fitness programs, you’ll also make new friends and find opportunities to strengthen the social fabric of your community.

The YMCA of Coastal Carolina partners with insurance companies to provide memberships

Seniors are a significant and valued part of our YMCA of Coastal Carolina community. Most Medicare Advantage and some Medicare Supplement Plans, also known as Medigap, include access to gym memberships. We have partnered with several programs to offer memberships at no cost to the individual with a qualifying plan. The insurance company pays a portion, and our Y subsidizes the other portion in order to ensure all have access to improve their health.

While each program operates differently, all offer multiple fitness options including access to gyms and at-home workouts at no cost to members. 

Medicare Plans we accept

We accept the following Medicare plans:

  • Silver and Fit
  • Renew Active
  • Fiton Health

Ask your insurance provider for more details.
