Unfortunately, many members enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans don’t know about or take advantage of all the benefits available to them. A lot of Medicare Advantage plans offer wellness benefits and incentives designed to encourage better health.
Studies have shown that regular exercise, routine exams, and access to healthy food options can improve a member’s overall well-being. Here are just a few examples of some of the top wellness benefits & incentives we see:
Many plans provide food cards that give members a monthly allowance to spend on healthy food items. Not only does it help to offset the cost of groceries, but it also gives member access to healthy food choices they may not otherwise have.
While most plans offer routine vision, dental, and hearing benefits, flex cards have become quite popular with Medicare Advantage plans. For instance, if you need more coverage for one kind of treatment and not the other, these cards provide you extra money to spend on the items most important to you.
Flex cards have also been known to provide benefits for home expenses, such as utilities.
Some plans offer wellness incentives that allow you to earn points by getting routine checkups and doing activities that promote wellness. Regularly exercising is a great way to accumulate points and some plans even offer gym memberships as a benefit. These points can then be accumulated and exchanged for gift cards and other rewards.
