Benefits of Healthy Ages membership

Medicare trained staff

Specially-trained staff that participate in CMS training each year to stay current on Medicare programs. Staff is available to assist you in finding community and national resources and services.

The programs are currently hosted on a virtual platform allowing you to participate from the comfort of your home or office.

Medicare information and advocacy

Medicare classes are being offered virtually. The Medicare class is designed to help you understand your Medicare benefits and how Medicare Supplement plans, Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Part D Prescription plans and Retiree plans work with Medicare. You will be provided with current information to assist you in making well-informed Medicare choices. Call 509-942-2700 to schedule your phone appointment. Medicare materials will be emailed to you after your appointment is scheduled.

Newsletters

You will receive the Community Health Transmitter to help keep you informed of Healthy Ages Programs. The newsletter will highlight information on how to maintain your health and well-being.

Mall walkers

The mall walking program is a great way to exercise and be incentivized to keep you motivated. At this time, due to COVID 19, Columbia Center is not opening early for the program. However, you are able to walk during regular mall hours as long as you follow the mall rules of keeping a mask on and staying six feet apart. As a registered walker, you can call healthy ages at 509-942-2700 to report your miles walked in the mall, on your treadmill or out in the community. Your miles will be tracked and you will receive prizes such as patches, t-shirts and fanny packs.

Vial of Life

Healthy Ages is a proud sponsor of the free Vial of Life containers supplied to the community. The Vial of Life is a container that holds a document you fill out with your critical medical information. A magnet is supplied with the container that you place on your refrigerator door. In the event of an emergency, this magnet informs EMS that you have health information in the vial in your refrigerator or freezer. To receive a Vial of Life, please call Healthy Ages: 509-942-2700.
