Editor, Us seniors had until Dec. 7 to select our Medicare Advantage Plan for 2014. Many of us had to change providers for 2013 due to decertification of our plan. An unfortunate part of that change was a movement to the Silver Sneakers fitness program from Silver and Fit. This year none of the approved Island County Medicare Advantage Plan providers offer Silver and Fit. The problem with that is the closest exercise spot for us is either Mukilteo or Coupeville on the Silver Sneakers program.
