YMCA of Greater Erie

Medicaid beneficiaries on the CoventryCares health plan can get a free membership to the YMCA of Greater Erie through the CoventryCares’ Movers and Shapers Fitness program.  The program is designed to improve the overall health and well-being of local families on Medical Assistance by increasing their access to fitness and weight management facilities at YMCAs in this area.

Unlike other programs that cover the cost for adults only, the Movers and Shapers program covers the cost of membership for children as well.

“There are a lot of fun and exciting ways to get and stay fit at the YMCA, and, it’s easier if the whole family is involved,” said Denise Gallagher, vice president of Medicaid for CoventryCares.  “The CoventryCares fitness program is designed to be enjoyable for people of all ages, and it’s something families can do together.  We’re proud to join with the YMCA on this valuable program to help improve the health of our members and the community.
