Health Alliance Plan (HAP), a Michigan-based nonprofit health plan, is partnering with Peerfit®, a digital health technology company, to bring Peerfit Move to its Medicare Advantage members. Peerfit Move encourages Medicare members to maintain an active lifestyle by providing flexible fitness options and facilitating social connections. The current Peerfit network has more than 290 facilities in Michigan and more than 10,500 nationwide.
Regular physical activity is essential for Medicare-eligible patients because it can help improve mental and physical health. It also helps seniors maintain their independence, something that has become increasingly important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
HAP’s fitness benefit powered by Peerfit will be available to all individual Medicare Advantage, and Medicare Supplement members enrolled in a 2021 HAP plan. Members who utilize HAP’s fitness benefit will have credits available to them each month to be used toward a gym membership, an in-home FitKit, and/or virtual or in-person classes at a fitness studio or community center.
Each month, members will determine how they want to use their credits, providing members with the option of sticking with their fitness plan, or using their credits to try something new. Peerfit’s extensive national network also means that “snowbirds” who visit other states for up to six months each year can visit any brick and mortar locations in the Peerfit network during their time away from home.
Upon logging in to the Peerfit Move account, HAP’s Medicare members will enjoy access to an expanded fitness network that includes community events and at-home activity programs, including virtual classes, specialty hosted classes, and access to training catalogs like Peerfit Move FitKits and BurnAlong Streaming Fitness. The Peerfit program is designed for flexibility to encourage and support active senior living.
