As part of its mission to provide the highest quality service and improve the health status of its members, ConnectiCare today announced a three-year partnership with well-being improvement leader Healthways (NASDAQ: HWAY) to offer the award-winning SilverSneakers ® Fitness Program. SilverSneakers, the nation’s leading exercise program designed to keep older adults active and healthy, is available to eligible members of select ConnectiCare VIP Medicare Advantage plans beginning Jan. 1, 2013.

“ConnectiCare is committed to improving the health and well-being of our members. We recognize the importance of maintaining active lives, both mentally and physically, particularly as one gets older, and we are proud to offer this benefit to our members. Like preventive services covered by ConnectiCare that are above and beyond what you receive under Original Medicare, this is yet another great example of our commitment to helping our members stay healthy,” said Tony Tedeschi, ConnectiCare’s Vice President of Medicare Programs.

Using proven methodologies based upon more than 16 years of science and outcomes, the SilverSneakers Fitness Program increases physical activity in older adults, resulting in higher well-being and lower health care costs. Physical activity can reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, may relieve symptoms of depression, helps to maintain independent living, and enhances overall quality of life.

Strength training is recommended as part of a comprehensive physical activity program among older adults and may help to improve balance and decrease risk of falls. 1 SilverSneakers engages participants in more frequent strength training and aerobic and flexibility exercises through access to a variety of venues and programming designed specifically for older adults that incorporates physical fitness and social experiences.

“By providing the SilverSneakers Fitness Program, ConnectiCare is demonstrating its commitment to meeting the needs of its members through a solution designed to enhance the health and well-being of participants,” said Ben R. Leedle, Jr., Healthways president and chief executive officer. “We look forward to partnering with ConnectiCare to provide this time-tested, proven program to their older-adult Medicare Advantage members."
