BAM Announces Partnership with Renew Active
BAM is excited to announce that we've officially launched a partnership with the Renew Active fitness program offered through several Medicare and Medicaid insurance plans. If you are a member of this program, you may be able to swim with BAM at no additional cost!
Details of this program
Which plans qualify?
To participate, your insurance plan must include Renew Active for Medicare or Medicaid at the Premium level
We can’t advise you on which insurance plan to enroll in, but we believe that the following plans will qualify (please verify before enrolling):
United Healthcare Medicare Advantage
United Healthcare Medicare Supplement
Colorado PERA Retirement
Is this the same as Silver Sneakers?
No. Unfortunately, we do not have a partnership with Silver Sneakers. If you want to take advantage of this program with BAM, you need to enroll in an insurance plan with support for the Renew Active program.
You are free to contact Silver Sneakers and request that they partner with BAM.
How do I register for this?
To swim with BAM, you must have an account on this website.
Once you are a member of the Renew Active program, you will receive a member code from your insurance provider. Provide that code to us by email (email@example.com). We will enter this ID into your account and sign you up for a Partner Membership.
If you don’t know your Renew Active member ID, you can find it on your insurance website or by calling the number on your insurance card.
What if I’m already a paid BAM member?
Unfortunately, we can’t issue refunds if you have already paid. But if you have punches left on your punch pass, they will remain in the system.
How do I sign up for workouts?
You sign up the same as you did before on bamswimming.org. Just like with any pass, you must sign up in advance for each workout, and you must cancel if you don’t attend. Remember, BAM doesn’t get paid if you don’t sign up.
Sign up for as many workouts as you like!
Do I need to check in when I come to a workout?
When you go to the city rec centers and pools to swim with BAM, tell the person at the front desk that you are with BAM, and they will let you in. You should not give the front desk your information to check in. However, if you come to work out or swim laps on your own, then you should check in at the front desk, and they will admit you for free with your Renew Active membership. Remember, if you are there for BAM, don’t check in with the front desk, because Renew Active will not reimburse both the city and BAM for the same workout.
Do I need to sign up again next year?
Nope. Once BAM has your member ID, you will remain in our system and don’t need to register again.
Sign up now if you are currently enrolled in Renew Active. If you will be joining one of those plans next year, you can sign up on January 1, once you have your new gym member code.
