Superior Douglas County Family YMCA


Very Important Update:

As our facility continues to grow and look for efficiencies, one element of the insurance reimbursement program process is changing.
The fitness insurance reimbursement will be directly deposited into your bank accounts automatically each month instead of getting a credit to your membership dues. This is an easier, timelier way to manage the reimbursement program. You will no longer receive the reward as a credit or discount to your YMCA membership dues. Once you complete the required days per month, you will see your reimbursement deposited directly into your individual bank accounts. In order to be eligible for insurance reimbursements you need to go online to: to add and edit your member profile and add your bank account information; this must be completed by January 31, 2017 . Please see below for directions. The first month you will receive the reward dollars back into your chosen account will be on or about February 25, 2017 – and on or about the 25th of every month you are eligible beyond that.
Your workouts will continue to be tracked when you scan your card at the front desk and workout at the Y. We will still report the number of visits after each month.
We continually strive to make changes for the betterment of our members. Thank you for your continued support. If you have already gone on the website and have updated all of your information and adding your banking information, thank you.
