Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, wants to be your doctor, too.

In September 2019 the company known for its “Everyday Low Prices” launched Walmart Health, a primary care clinic, at a store in Dallas, Georgia. The doctor-run clinic, the first of its kind for the big box retailer, offers services like X-rays, annual checkups, and dental exams.

As consumers face skyrocketing healthcare costs, Walmart, along with rivals CVS Health and Walgreens, is diving deeper into the healthcare business, opening in-store clinics in an attempt to grab a slice of the $3.6 trillion Americans spend annually on healthcare.

With more than 35 million people uninsured as of 2019, could Walmart Health’s low price point be the future of healthcare in America?
