Walmart is expanding its presence in healthcare from pharmacy and optometry to primary care clinics and other healthcare services. While Obamacare expanded healthcare coverage for many, 27.5 million individuals were still uninsured in 2018, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Walmart intends to capitalize on their long-standing low-cost leadership business model to expand its healthcare services, in order to compete with the current model of primary care and other health services. However, Walmart’s entry into these services has not come without pushback, and their competition is stiff. Will Walmart be able to succeed where the Federal government was not able to?
