American adults of at least 18 years of age who are residing in the US can be primary members. We cannot, however, accept a Member into KNEW Health Community at this time if they are within three months of their 65th birthday or older. In the United States, reaching the age of 65 means entry eligibility for the Medicare insurance program. Medicare has very specific and strict rules that govern healthcare visits, billing, and payment that are not compatible with medical cost sharing.
We will, however, be offering other KNEW Health program options in the future that will give these individuals an opportunity to join our movement and benefit from health promotion services.
So please stay tuned for more information as we grow and expand!
