Walmart is on a mission to bring affordable, accessible healthcare to the communities we serve. Today, we’re proud to announce that families in Florida will soon have access to this care when we expand Walmart Health into the state next year.
Walmart Health offers low, transparent pricing for key healthcare services, regardless of insurance status. This is especially important for communities that lack access to affordable healthcare, which we know is an unfortunate reality for so many right now.
The combined crises of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic recession and subsequent loss of health insurance for millions of Americans have reinforced the vulnerabilities of our healthcare system. At Walmart, we understand that this means our customers need us now, more than ever. We don’t take this responsibility lightly and are committed to helping our customers save money while living better – and healthier.
We recognize we can make an impact by increasing access to quality, affordable and convenient healthcare as we invest millions of dollars and expand Walmart Health into Florida, which is home to the second highest number of Walmart stores in the country. It’s also where we launched our $4 generic prescription program more than a decade ago.
