What is Renew Active?


The Renew Active™ Medicare fitness program is a very attractive benefit to many beneficiaries. UnitedHealthcare® knows that fitness, wellness and prevention go a long way toward reducing claims costs. That’s why some of their plans offer Renew Active™.

Renew Active™ Fitness Program for Medicare Beneficiaries


Renew Active™ members can visit participating fitness locations to receive standard access at no additional cost. This includes access to a variety of exercise equipment, classes and group activities. You choose the programs and location that are right for you. Amenities may vary by location. You also receive access to BrainHQ, which features fun, online brain exercises and activities designed to keep your mind active. You will be able to access Renew Active beginning on the effective date of your eligible Medicare Advantage health plan.

Renew Active™ is a completely free to use fitness program for Medicare beneficiaries. Seniors with a Renew Active™ membership have unlimited access to lots of locations where they can participate in healthy physical activity. If the gym accepts Renew Active™ membership, you are able to exercise at their facility completely free. Members can visit myrenewactive.com and enter their address, city or zip code to find a list of participating fitness locations in their area.

Some participating fitness locations may offer extra services at an extra charge (e.g., towel service,
dedicated lockers). Extra services are not part of the program, and it will be up to each member to pay for the additional services if they wish to use them

You will receive a fitness location membership ID card if your participating fitness location has them for its members.

Medicare and Renew Active™


Original Medicare (Parts A and B) does not include the Renew Active™ fitness program. The only way you can receive a Renew Active™ membership is if you apply and enroll in either a UnitedHealthcare® Medicare Solutions Medicare Advantage plan or a Medicare Supplement plan that offers a Renew Active™ membership along with the plan.

UnitedHealthcare® Medicare Solutions Medicare Advantage plans are private Medicare plans that pay instead of your Original Medicare. UnitedHealthcare® Medicare Solutions Part C Advantage plans are allowed by Medicare to include extra benefits, like dental, vision, hearing services and a gym membership.

If you are interested in a Medicare plan that includes a gym membership please contact us.
