The health insurance services that Walmart now offers is something new, so don’t worry if you just find out, we will tell you all the details right away.

What Walmart Healthcare Services Are Available?
Insurance at Walmart is definitely something new, so we are excited to spread the word about this new service. We know that the Walmart pharmacy can already offer great prices on certain medications, but they have more services that you need to know and consider as a good option. I hope you find this information as useful as it was for me.
Now in certain locations, Walmart has full-care clinics. If you enter the page you can use the area code search engine to find your closest Walmart Clinic and keep an eye out for more locations in the future. The services at a Care Clinic are those of most after-hours clinics you have probably been to. Walmart has this list of Care Clinic services on its website, but some may vary by location.
- Primary care
- Laboratories and X-rays
- Health screening
- Fitness and nutrition
- Education and enrollment in health insurance

If you don’t have a care clinic nearby, you can also take advantage of Walmart’s pharmacy services that include vaccinations and COVID booster shots. They also have a convenient blood pressure cuff nearby and a waiting area in most places. You can save a separate trip to a clinic by scheduling your shots directly at Walmart during a regular shopping trip!

The Walmart Pharmacy staff can also help you navigate the difficult understanding of Medicare enrollment, if needed. It may seem surprising that you can find out your enrollment for insurance at Walmart, but this is actually one of the main services they provide. Find out more here.
Not within driving distance of Walmart? The Walmart insurance site here also has a phone number you can call to discuss your Medicare plan options with a licensed insurance agent. While agents can talk to you about Medicare, Walmart Insurance also offers specific plans through United, Humana, Anthem, and WellCare.
We know from talking to family members that navigating Medicare and what it has to offer can be a complicated process and can lead to some stress. Switching from insurance is something you want to do well. Medicare plans can be very unfamiliar to you unless you’ve been closely helping another family member get involved. In our case, I did the whole process of finding out and reading online when necessary since I was unaware of this option. Although little by little I began to use the health services of Walmart, the insurance one did not and the truth would have helped me a lot. If planning for Medicare is new to you too, talking to a trusted source is a great first step to take.
I hope this information is useful and if so, share it with your acquaintances. Until next time!
