Walmart is in the process of piecing together a comprehensive low-cost primary care healthcare platform, as evidenced by a Request for Information the mass retailer sent to potential vendors.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — According to a Request for Information released Tuesday and reported by Kaiser Health News, Walmart is in the process of piecing together a comprehensive low-cost primary care healthcare platform.

However, Walmart later denied this report in a statement released to the public on Wednesday. "The RFI statement of intent is overwritten and incorrect. We are not building a national, integrated, low-cost primary care healthcare platform," stated John Agwunobi, SVP and president of Walmart U.S. health and wellness.
