LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevadans looking for good news about affordable health care coverage are in luck ... Today, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield introduced SmartSense -- new price-conscious, choice-driven health insurance plan targeted to "early" retirees, the self-employed, independent contractors, students and the uninsured.
