Added benefits

We believe San Diegans deserve more. That's why our Sharp Direct Advantage plans include these additional member benefits.

Free fitness resources

Our members receive both gym access through Silver&Fit® and a home fitness kit featuring a Fitbit Inspire at no cost! Access facilities such as 24 Hour Fitness, Curves, Jazzercise, LA Fitness and more throughout San Diego. If you prefer to exercise at home, we offer 35 available at-home exercise programs including the new Fitbit® Connected! Kit that can be mailed directly to your home.

Discover MinuteClinic, a walk-in medical clinic located inside select CVS Pharmacy stores. Enjoy convenient access to quality medical care without an appointment. Open seven days a week, including evenings and weekends. For most members, your copay for MinuteClinic is the same as your copayment for an office visit to your primary care physician (PCP).



Staying active during COVID-19

Many fitness centers are now closed for everyone’s health and safety during the COVID-19 crisis. To help you stay active, Silver&Fit has enhanced its at-home fitness options.
