  • NO

    but there are medicare plans such as medicare advantage or Medicare Gap that has gym membership benefits. You get a yearly membership at a very good discount.

  • Not that I know of. It isn't medical treatment so I wouldn't think it would be covered.

  • Medicaid will not. Medicare (available only for disabled individuals or those over 65) might if it's a medicare advantage plan. Straight Medicare will not though, as far as I know.
