A new Florida Blue Medicare wellness program for mature adults over 65 started in February.
Focused specifically on Medicare beneficiaries, members and non-members alike can take advantage of free health-related workshops, fitness classes and wellness seminars designed to their specific needs.
The programs are available at the 11 flagship Florida Blue Centers and individuals can register online or by calling the centers.
- Weekly fitness classes including yoga, Tai Chi and Zumba
- Fall prevention series
- Healthy eating program to boost physical activity
- Wellness seminars focused on setting wellness goals, medication management, alcohol awareness, depression awareness and STD/HIV prevention
To encourage participation, BlueMedicare HMO members were mailed a program brochure in late February and BlueMedicare PPO members will be emailed information in late March. Medicare collaborative physician groups and agents will also receive collateral to distribute.
