zero dollar copay for primary care doctor visits. and, our members pay a zero dollar copay for specialist visits and a zero dollar copay for hospital stays as well. i wanted a plan that's been here as long as we have. senior dimensions is one of the longest-standing local medicare advantage plans in nevada, and our plan offers many tier one preferred generic drugs for a zero dollar copay at most local neighborhood pharmacies. i like that i have plenty of doctors and specialists to choose from. senior dimensions offers a broad network of local providers est medical associates, one of the largest and fastest growing multi- specialty groups in nevada. it's what i want. and she gets what she wants!
