News Briefs: UnitedHealth, Walmart Ink Medicare Advantage Deal

UnitedHealth Group on Sept. 7 unveiled a “10-year, wide-ranging collaboration” with Walmart Inc., which will start in 2023 with 15 Walmart Health locations in Florida and Georgia. UnitedHealth’s Optum division will provide Walmart Health clinicians with “analytics and decision support tools” to help them improve outcomes for Medicare beneficiaries, and the two firms will offer a co-branded Medicare Advantage plan starting in January called UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Walmart Flex (HMO-POS). Commercial health plan members with UnitedHealthcare’s Choice Plus PPO plan will also have in-network access to Walmart Health Virtual Care, effective in January. “Eventually, the collaboration aims to serve even more people, including those across commercial and Medicaid plans, by providing access to fresh food and enhancing current initiatives to address social determinants of health, over-the-counter and prescription medications, and dental and vision services,” stated a UnitedHealth press release.
