This partnership will provide Peerfit Move as a fitness and wellness benefit for thousands of seniors residing in the Central Valley of California
TAMPA, Fla. (January 10, 2022) - Innovative Integrated Health Community Plans, Inc. (IIH Community Plans), a newly-launched Medicare Advantage plan, announced that they have partnered with Peerfit® to offer Peerfit Move for their members. IIH Community Plans offers plans in Fresno, Kern and Tulare counties. The partnership with Peerfit Move brings a fresh, personalized approach to fitness and wellness benefits offered to Medicare beneficiaries.
“IIH Community Plans is focused on the health and well-being of seniors and the community,” said Javier Sanchez, IIH Community Plans CEO. "Being active in the community and engaging in physical activity has numerous benefits, especially as we get older. The key to remaining active is to find something we enjoy doing, and Peerfit Move allows us to provide this to our members. We are excited to introduce this offering to our members in 2022."
Peerfit, the market leader in connecting employers and carriers with personalized corporate fitness benefits, has been working with companies and insurance carriers to bring a different kind of wellness benefit to corporate benefits programs. Providing access to a variety of fitness offerings within a nationwide network has allowed organizations to provide personalized fitness benefits while building culture and community. Realizing the lack of similar options in the Medicare Advantage industry, Peerfit launched Peerfit Move in 2019, which provides a solution that would reach a larger population over the age of 65.
"We realized there were major gaps in the wellness benefits being offered to seniors." said Peerfit Chairman and CEO Ed Buckley, III, Ph.D. "A partnership with Innovative Integrated Health will help us provide more personalized fitness and wellness experiences for seniors in California. Our wellness solution builds community to help combat loneliness and provides easy access to a variety of fitness and wellness solutions to make being active easier."
Beginning January 1, 2022, Peerfit will administer the fitness benefit for Innovative Integrated Health Community Plans members residing in Fresno, Kern and Tulare counties in California.
