Optional Plan Services
When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you may have the opportunity to pay an extra monthly premium to get additional coverage for fitness or dental benefits. These optional supplemental services are called riders.
Examples of benefits available through riders, which are through UnitedHealthcare® health plans, include:
- Dental coverage for preventive care, basic dental services like fillings, and major dental services like root canal treatment.
- The Fitness Rider provides access to the SilverSneakers® Fitness Program, which offers a basic fitness club membership and in many locations health education seminars and access to advisors trained in fitness, including fitness for older adults.1
