(Las Vegas, NV)  –  Southern Nevada seniors will have fewer choices for Medicare Advantage plans.

UnitedHealth Group will no longer offer its Spectrum program to local customers,  while Anthem Blue Cross-Blue Shield has withdrawn its own Advantage program.

The move affects nearly 8000 members, but both companies say they will offer alternatives.

The CMS says seniors still have a dozen Medicare Advantage plans to choose from, or they can opt for original Medicare.
