Walmart, UnitedHealth Strike Latest Insurer-Retail Clinic Deal

Walmart Inc. and UnitedHealth Group will launch a co-branded Medicare Advantage plan in Georgia, license Optum-branded analytic and decision-making tools to existing Walmart Health clinics in 15 Florida and Georgia locations, and use Optum software to enable those Walmart clinics to enter value-based network agreements with MA plans.

One health care insider tells AIS Health that the move is further evidence of patients’ frustration with traditional, standalone clinics — and evidence that managed care firms are placing heavy bets on new types of providers to capitalize on that dissatisfaction.
