Grouper Partnership

The golfing community has long been celebrated for its ability to foster social connections and combat social isolation. Golfers often gather at clubs, tournaments, and events to share their passion, exchange ideas, and build friendships. These interactions go beyond mere sport discussions; they provide a sense of belonging and camaraderie that can significantly enhance one’s quality of life.

In an increasingly interconnected world, the importance of social connection cannot be overstated. It’s not just about having friends or acquaintances; social interaction plays a crucial role in our mental, emotional, and even physical well-being. Recognizing this, the Missouri Golf Association (MGA) is proud to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Grouper.

Grouper is a radically new benefit from your current health plan that recognizes the profound social benefits of activities like golfing. They partner with Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans to cover the annual MGA Membership Dues for eligible members aged 65 and above. This means that our eligible members can continue to enjoy the benefits of MGA membership without worrying about the financial burden.

What does this mean for MGA members:

  • Eligible members aged 65 and get a check from Grouper to help cover their golfing membership dues
  • Grouper will reward members for participation in golfing and other activities that enhance social well-being and overall health.

Grouper goes beyond financial aid, motivating members to engage in golfing and social activities, prioritizing their social well-being. Research indicates that social isolation contributes to health risks like depression and cardiovascular disease. By fostering social connections and reducing costs, Grouper enhances the overall health and happiness of MGA members.

Moreover, the partnership between MGA and Grouper is not just about individual benefits; it’s about strengthening the fabric of our community as a whole. Golfing is more than just a hobby; it’s a shared passion that brings people together from all walks of life. By fostering a sense of community and belonging, we create a supportive environment where members can thrive and grow, both personally and professionally.

Members aged 65 and above with an eligible health plan can easily sign up for Grouper at by providing their current health plan details and their Golf Handicap Index Number. Once they confirm your health plan’s eligibility, Grouper will send a check to pay annual MGA dues. Plus – as long as your plan includes Grouper and you remain an active golfer, your dues will be covered annually.

So, join us in embracing the power of social connection and community. Sign up for Grouper today and see how your health plan can reward you for something you already knew – golfing is good for your health.
