Free Gym Memberships

Visual asset.
Does Your Plan Include A Free Gym Membership?
Staying active and maintaining a healthy lifestyle becomes increasingly important as we age. Regular exercise not only benefits our physical health, but also improves mental well-being. Fortunately, many Medicare plans offer a valuable perk that allows seniors to access free or discounted gym memberships. In this article, we will explore how seniors can take advantage of this opportunity and enjoy the benefits of a healthier, more active lifestyle.
A free gym membership can be a great perk, but it shouldn't be your only factor in choosing a plan. We suggest considering plans based on their level of health coverage before considering any perks. One of our Advisors can walk you through any tradeoffs.

Tips for Successful Aging

Tips for Keeping Your Body and Mind Sharp from the

Visual asset.
Life expectancy is increasing for people in the United States. The U.S. Census Bureau says that in 1920, 1 in 20 people in the country were age 65 or older. In 2020, that number was 1 in 6.
Living longer should mean more time to spend with your loved ones, doing things you enjoy, making memories and cementing your legacy. Not just more time juggling the chronic and progressive ailments of older age.
Here are a few tips they suggest:
  • Maintain your physical health
  • Keep your mind engaged 
  • Share your wishes and goals with friends and loved ones

This is the summer of pasta salad — and not the monochromatic, mayo-slicked, celery-studded macaroni you may have grown up with, but rather, the bright, colorful, refreshing kind with seasonal ingredients, unconventional pasta shapes and tangy homemade dressing.
Pasta salad's new look can be seen all over TikTok, as 

reported by Vox

, where the hashtag #

pastasaladsummer

 has over 32 million views, and all the videos under it show vibrant, eye-catching dishes — which are most definitely not your grandma's pasta salad.
Olives, mini mozzarella balls (aka bocconcini), pepperoncini, salami, pepperoni, cucumbers, fresh basil, and plenty of olive oil and vinegar are all common ingredients; taking inspiration from...

Insulin Affordability Changes

Effective July 1, 2023, Medicare Part B beneficiaries or those enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan who use an insulin pump furnished via durable medical equipment will no longer have to pay a deductible for insulin and will have a copayment cap of $35 per month supply for their Part B covered insulin.
