“We’re incredibly honored to become a Walmart Center of Excellence and provide high-quality care to Walmart associates, furthering our mission to make fertility and family-building care affordable and accessible for all,” said Gina Bartasi, founder and chairwoman of Kindbody. “Our partnership with Walmart signals that fertility benefits have joined medical, dental, and vision as standard workplace benefits for leading employers.”
This center will build on Walmart's existing COE model, which provides benefit support and coverage for certain heart, spine and joint surgeries and cancer treatments, in partnership with some of the best healthcare providers and facilities in the country. Walmart chooses Centers of Excellence through a highly selective process, which requires health care providers to demonstrate an ability to provide excellent care, a dedication to addressing the root cause of a patient's condition and an outstanding patient experience, amongst other key criteria that are reviewed.
