OptumCare® Network of Nevada accepts two Medicare Advantage plans: Senior Dimensions® and AARP® MedicareComplete® (HMO) insurance through UnitedHealthcare.
To become a patient, you'll need to make sure through your insurance plan that you're a part of the OptumCare Network. You can then choose a primary care provider who is a part of the network.
