Sam’s Club Offers Discount Health Services
By George Anderson
Members of 552 Sam’s Clubs nationwide now will have access to discounts of up to 50 percent on a variety of medical and dental services through UnitedHealth Group’s HealthAllies
According to a joint press release from Sam’s Club and UnitedHealth, “healthcare affordability is the #1 issue facing small businesses.” The Census Bureau estimates more than
43 million Americans have no health insurance coverage.
Cara Kinzey, vice president of membership for Sam’s Club, said, “We recognize that operating efficiency and employee retention are vital to the success of small businesses. The
HealthAllies discount program is a cost-effective way to help make quality health care more affordable for small businesses and their employees.”
Moderator’s Comment: Will we see more retailers following suit and offering discount health services?
Sam’s Club Plus Members can enroll in the program for free while other members will pay a fee. –
