Insurance Wellness Programs & Silver Sneakers

Pickleball Players at the ERCClick to check your eligibility for the SilverSneakers Fitness Program

The Emporia Recreation Wellness Center is continuing our partnership with SilverSneakers and Prime Fitness from Tivity Health as well as Silver&Fit and Active&Fit from ASH (American Specialty Health). We have also added Renew Active by UnitedHealthcare, the only plans with the AARP name. These partnerships involve a health, exercise and wellness program including:

• Access to our membership amenities such as our Wellness Center and Walking Track

• Admittance to Fitness Classes including Aquatics and Lap Swimming

• Participation in Indoor Sports like Pickleball, Racquetball, Open Gym and Table Tennis

Most importantly, your membership is available at no cost to you through certain participating health plans. In the Kansas area, there are three healthcare providers for Tivity Health programs: Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City, Aetna and Humana United Healthcare. For the ASH programs, Cigna Healthcare is the provider in this area. Renew Active is a viable option for those with UnitedHealthcare and AARP. 

We recommend you contact your health care provider to gain information on these programs today.
