It’s that time of year when the Bowling Green Community Center staff is starting the prep for 2019 Fitness Program Insurance changes that may affect your Community Center pass.  Changes have been mandated by the insurance companies and not by the Bowling Green Parks & Recreation Department. 

On Jan. 1, 2019 all Silver Sneaker Passes will be put on hold. The Bowling Green Community Center staff is asking each person to bring in their insurance card and either their  Silver Sneaker Card or their Renew Active/Optum letter with their authorization code number.  With that information we will determine your pass eligibility. 

The most significant change will affect individuals with AARP Supplemental Insurance.  Starting Jan. 1, 2019 individuals with an AARP Supplemental Insurance Plan will be responsible for 50 percent of the cost of a pass.

We are committed to helping you with your fitness goals so please if you have any questions, let us help you determine your eligibility so that you may continue on your path to better health and wellness.

If you have any questions please call 419-354-6223 and you will be directed to a staff member who can answer your questions.

BG Parks & Recreation is here to enhance lives darily, contact us so we can talk about what that means for you.
