We want everyone to be involved with the programs and services of the Y that nurture spirit, mind and body, which is why we offer our Open Doors Income Based Rates.

Open Doors

In an effort to encourage health and well being for individuals in our community, the YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South offers an income-based rate scale. Known as the Open Doors Program, the rate scale correlates membership rates to annual household income.

Find your Y location and calculate your estimated monthly Open Doors Rate on your branch's Membership page.

Insurance Partnerships

The YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South is proud to partner with insurance providers to offer those who are Medicare-eligible access to a healthy lifestyle. Our association currently holds relationships with Silver & Fit® (Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield) and RenewActive™ (UnitedHealthcare, Optum), to provide these services. To determine if your YMCA membership may be covered by your insurance plan, please consult your insurance company.
