Walmart is promoting a low-premium, high-deductible plan for new incoming employees. Premium can be as low as $11 a month with a relatively high deductible of $1000.
Roughly 46% of Walmart’s 1.3 million store-level workers are enrolled in its health care plans.
This new plan is not helping Walmart’s image. Critics like wakeupwalmart contend that the new plan discourages unhealthy people from seeking work at its stores.
