SilverSneakers is the leading community fitness program for older adults in the US. As part of SilverSneakers’ mission to improve the health and wellbeing of older adults, SilverSneakers is partnering with Stitch to provide complimentary Stitch memberships to eligible members of participating health plans.
Stitch will be available to eligible SilverSneakers members in a number of participating health plans from January 2022 onwards.
Please be aware that as this is a new program, only a small number of plans will be participating in the SilverSneakers Connect program at launch, but we expect more health plans to participate as the program grows.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I am eligible for a complimentary Stitch membership?
Log in to your SilverSneakers account (https://www.silversneakers.com) to find out whether you are eligible for a complimentary Stitch membership. If you qualify, you will see Stitch listed as one of your benefits.
If your current health plan does not offer you a complimentary Stitch membership, please be patient! As the Stitch & SilverSneakers Connect program grows, we anticipate that an increasing number of health plans will decide to make Stitch memberships available to their members. To help them along and raise awareness, we encourage you to contact your health plan and ask them to consider Stitch as a partner.
What do I get as a SilverSneakers Connect member?
As an eligible SilverSneakers Connect member, you will receive a complimentary Community Standard membership, valued at $40 per month. This allows you to host and attend an unlimited number of events, create your own interest groups, contribute to the online discussion forums, and fully participate in the Stitch Community as a Full member. You can learn more about the Community Standard membership here.
SilverSneakers Connect members also receive complimentary verification of their accounts. Verification is one of the most important aspects of Stitch and ensures that our membership consists only of real, verified individuals, and helps keep scammers and fraudsters out of the community.
