Wellness Wallet FAQs

Q: Where can I purchase fitness equipment?

A: You can purchase equipment from any licensed retail establishment. We will not approve reimbursement for fitness equipment that has been purchased from a nonretail source (example: yard sale or Craigslist). The safety of our members is important and we want to ensure there is no risk of injury from noncertified equipment. If members are seeking to save on the costs or prefer to purchase second-hand equipment, there are a number of retailers—such as Play-it-Again Sports—that offer used equipment that has been checked for proper function and safety.

Q: Will the Wellness Wallet cover Silver Sneakers® reimbursement?

A: No. However, we cover a number of items and services comparable to SilverSneakers. New for 2021 the following classes, fees or memberships are now eligible for reimbursement under your Generations Advantage Plan Wellness Wallet benefit. See your individual plan page for your yearly reimbursement amount.

  • Exercise Classes such as Martial Arts, Dance Classes and Yoga Classes, etc.
  • Club/Team/Lesson fees such as Golf Course Fees, Cycling Club fees, Squash Club Fees, Horseback Riding, etc.
  • Pickleball
  • Pool or YMCA membership fees
  • Fitness club/Gym membership fees
  • Personal trainer fees at a facility

Q: Will any nutritional/dietary program be eligible for reimbursement?

A: Any individual or group education and counseling is eligible for reimbursement, as long as the services are provided by licensed or certified practitioners furnishing services within the scope of their license or certificate.

Q: Will the Wellness Wallet cover NutriSystem® or other meal programs?

A: Per Medicare guidelines, only weight management programs, such as Weight Watchers®—that include weekly structured lessons with regular feedback and monitoring tailored to individual goals qualify. We cannot cover any food for reimbursement.

Q: If I enroll in my Generations Advantage plan mid-year, do I still receive the entire Wellness Wallet benefit amount?

A: Yes! You receive the entire Wellness Wallet amount that is offered under your Generations Advantage plan even if you join the plan mid-year. As a reminder, dates for received services or purchased items must be within the current plan year in order to be reimbursed under that year's Wellness Wallet benefit. (See next FAQ for details on gym memberships.)

Q: Will my Wellness Wallet cover a gym membership than spans into the following year?

A: If you pay for a gym membership that spans months in 2021 and 2022 (for example, a full year membership from July 2021 through June 2022), you will be reimbursed for the entire amount of the membership, up to your 2021 Wellness Wallet dollar limit. If you are still a member of a plan with the Wellness Wallet benefit in 2022, you may resubmit the remaining amount at that time.

Q: Can I be reimbursed for shipping and/or assembly fees?

A: Yes! Under your Wellness Wallet benefit, the costs of taxes, shipping, delivery and assembly can be reimbursed.

Q: What happens if I place an order, but my payment isn’t processed until a later date?

A: If you place an order for an item, but payment is not taken until a later date, the date you placed the order is considered the date of purchase so long as your receipt shows the date you placed the order.  For example, if you place an order for an item on 12/31 but payment is not taken from your account until 1/1, your purchase date would be considered 12/31 provided that your receipt lists the 12/31order date.

If you are not sure whether your expense is eligible for reimbursement, please call Martin's Point Generations Advantage Member Services at 1-866-544-7504.
