I wonder what Bill's job is at Walmart. I suspect he ain't a lowly associate but in management.

time pause.

Did some internet poking around. WasMart has improved their health care plan.

Almost a year after Amazon’s highly-publicized announcement to fix healthcare for its employees, rival Walmart is expanding benefits for its workers at specialized healthcare facilities across the U.S. after data showed improved outcomes.

Walmart is expanding its “Centers of Excellence Program,” which has doubled the number of partners in the last two years to 15 sites, offering specialized treatments for cancer, organ transplantation, spine, knee, hip and heart surgeries.

Under the Centers of Excellence Program, Walmart sends patients to sites like the Cleveland Clinic or Mayo Clinic to better ensure patients are getting evaluated to make sure they actually need care. And if they do need treatment, the Centers of Excellence are supposed to make sure its done right the first time to improve quality and keep the employee healthy and working.

Walmart’s medical care provider partnerships in the Centers of Excellence program include Cleveland Clinic, Emory Healthcare, Geisinger Health System, Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, and Memorial Hermann.

OK WOW. I am impressed.
There used to be a requirement that associates had to work 30 hours a week to qualify for WalMart's health care plan. I wonder if that still applies. And whether Walmart manages health care costs vis limiting associates from working that 30 hour threshold.
