New West Health Service is adding plans for people on Medicare that will include memberships at fitness facilities and benefits for people who undertake home-based fitness plans.
The “Silver&Fit Exercise and Healthy Aging Program” will be included in three of New West’s Medicare Advantage plans, which are private plans essentially replacing Medicare and providing broad benefits, including prescription coverage.
The New West’s plans will also provide protection from unknown out-of-pocket expenses, the company says.
The premiums for the new plans range from $17 to $120 per month.
More than 90 fitness facilities in Montana are participating in the plan, according to New West. People who opt for home-based fitness plans may receive one of various home exercise kits, the company says.
Enrollment in the plans began Oct. 15, with the plans starting Jan. 1. They are available in 28 Montana counties.
