We specialize in choice. 

When a member joins the OptumCare® Network of Nevada, they’re part of a robust, integrated care system. Through our network, members can choose from over 1,700 primary and specialty care providers and a broad array of hospitals.

The insurance plan plays an important role.

To see a doctor who’s part of the network, members should first consult their health plan. In Nevada, five Medicare Advantage plans give access to the OptumCare Network:

  • UnitedHealthcare Medicare Focus (HMO)
  • UnitedHealthcare AARP® MedicareComplete® (HMO)
  • UnitedHealthcare AARP® MedicareComplete® Premier
  • Anthem MediBlue Coordination Plus (HMO)
  • Anthem MediBlue Plus (HMO)

Once you've have selected a plan and network, you're ready to choose a primary care provider who’s part of OptumCare.

How do they all work together? 

Figuring out how your health plan, medical network and doctor work together can be confusing. What’s the difference between what your health plan does and what your network does? How do they both work with your doctor? We’ve created a video to help make it more clear.

Health insurance plan
Your plan pays the cost of your medical care. This can include:

  • Medical benefits
