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. Call 855-597-3589 today, a representative from the Optum Sales Suppot Center* can connect you with a licensed insurance agent in your area to review your health insurance plan options.
