FAQs


What is Grouper?

Grouper is leading a social fitness movement that encourages healthy living through meaningful social connections and shared experiences.

Grouper helps you to access benefits through your Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement plan to pay for part or all of the activities that keep you socially connected and healthy. Join the movement!


What Does Grouper Pay For?

Grouper partners with health plans that offer their members activity benefits. We help you connect to social activities that match your passions. As you stay socially active and participate in qualifying in-person activities with Oklahoma Golf Association, we work with your health plan to support the cost of your membership dues and make other benefits available to you related to your social activity. If you qualify, you will receive an Initial Payment of $50. For every three months of recorded activity, you will receive an additional $20. These payments remain ongoing as you remain active with Oklahoma Golf Association.


Why Does My Insurance Plan Offer This?

We believe, and research has found, that staying active and having fun with friends is a winning combination. Joining and participating in clubs, associations and social groups has proven to have a positive impact on health and protect against social isolation and loneliness. Our health plan partners agree!


What Types of Activities Are Available?

We know that activities with meaningful social connections – from archery and quilting to pickleball and Zumba – can help keep us physically and mentally fit. Our network of clubs, associations, and groups offer a wide variety of activities to fit your passion. In a group already? Tell us about it, and we will explore how to include your group in our expansive network.  Looking for a group? Grouper has assembled a robust network of social activities for members to join and enjoy. Stay active, stay connected and keep us updated on your social activity – we do the rest. 


Is This a Gym Membership?

No, it’s way better! For decades, health plans have offered gym memberships as a fitness benefit designed to keep their eligible members healthy, but health plans found that group activities that members love are 10 times more popular than gym memberships. And an ever-growing body of medical and clinical evidence confirms the health benefits of being part of a group activity.


What’s the Catch? 

There is no catch! Grouper recognizes what medical and social research has now well documented: building and maintaining social connections become more difficult as we age. We believe that activities with others is an important part of the solution, and we are committed to bringing people together and rewarding activity. Simply put, group activities lead to longer and healthier lives. By partnering with health plans that share our values, Grouper helps eligible members access and make the most of their health plans’ social activity benefits available through their health insurance plans.


How Do I Know If I am Eligible?

It’s easy! Simply sign up on our website. We check your eligibility with your health plan and will notify you of your status. Eligible? Great! Get started right away. Not eligible? That’s OK. Check back in with us again soon. The number of health plan partners we work with is continuously expanding.


What Information Will I Need to Share to Check Eligibility?

You will need:

  • Basic contact information (Name, Phone, Email, Zip Code)
  • Health plan information
  • Golf Handicap ID (Optional)

How Do I Receive Payment? 

Sign up and provide your health plan member ID so we can check your eligibility. Once your eligibility and group membership are confirmed, Grouper will send you an initial payment of $50. For each three months of activity after that, we will send $20, if you stay active and keep us updated on your in-person social activity!


How Long Does it Take to Receive My Check?

You can expect to receive an initial $50 check by mail within 45 days of completing the full enrollment process and being declared eligible for Grouper. Additional $20 payments will be made after every three months of reported activity.


When Do Payments Stop?

You will receive $20 every three months for as long as you are active in your group!


How often do I receive a $50 payment? 

A member is eligible to receive the Initial Payment annually on the anniversary of the last initial payment provided that member has accrued 9 months of activity in the prior 12 months.  If 9 months have not been achieved, the member will become eligible for the payment as soon as the 9th active month is achieved.


How Do I Confirm that I Actively Participate in a Group? 

Confirming your activity is important and simple. Each month, we will remind you to log onto your account and tell us about your ongoing in-person participation. Participating in social activities may include things like being part of group events and tournaments hosted by Oklahoma Golf Association, attending member meetings and/or gatherings, and even joining informal social get togethers and similar social activities with members of your group.


What if I Have to Take a Break From My Activities?

We know that life sometimes gets in the way of even your favorite activities. As soon as you report three active months (they do not have to be in a row), you will receive your ongoing $20 payment. It helps to report your activity every month, so you don’t lose track.


Is My Privacy Protected?

Yes. Your information is not sold. We only share your information for the purposes of administering your social activity benefit provided to you by your health plan and to connect you with social activity groups, as explained in our Member Terms of Service, as well as our Privacy Policy.


Is Grouper an Insurance Company?

No. We are not a health insurance company, and we do not sell health insurance to members. We partner with health plans that offer social activity benefits to their members and encourage healthy and meaningful connection to members like you through social activities.
