employees of this walmart have only one choice of health insurance, blue-cross and blue-shield of alabama. this insurance pays only a tiny amt. even when the deductible has been met. it does not pay on preventative care, such as pap smears, lab work, etc. in other words, this insurance is of no benefit when an employee has to see their doctor. walmart needs a choice in health insurance plans, what happened to the john deere hmo, walmart doesn't even offer this anymore. the dental insurance they have is ok, but like i have said health insurance at walmart supercenters suck. thanks for allowing me to express my opinion and i really hope other walmart employees in virginia will complain. noone needs to pay high premiums for health insurance coverage if its not going to pay. its another rip-off for the walmart associate.

Walmart health insurance

AUTHOR: Dorothy - (U.S.A.)

Sorry about your health insurance with walmart. Just wanted you to know that my husband is self employed and has to purchase his own insurance. We have the same insurance you do Blue Cross Blue shield.....they have never paid much of our health insurance bills.....they have increased their premiums every six months and it has come to the point where I am looking for a different type of coverage. For a family of four we pay almost 6,000 a year for a coverage that does nothing more than give us a discount for medical issues....to top it off we hardly ever use the insurance.....good luck and hope all goes well....

Unions are the reason why health insurance and employee benefits run so high

AUTHOR: Denny - (U.S.A.)

Its unions that have run business into the ground. Unions who defend lazy workers, and hop they can get these same lazy workers, the BEST pay and BENEFITS, while joe schmoe on the street works twice as hard, and gets nothing.

YOU can get supplmental insurance on your own, if you find that Walmarts insurance plans are inadequate for your needs.

the excuse that walmart is the "biggest" employer is bull crap. There are jobs at mcdonalds, burger king, even your state has job openings; federal always has jobs, and of course you could always take up cleaning offices. dont need skills to do that.

if you find walmarts insurance inadequate, then quit.

Walmart

AUTHOR: Aladia - (U.S.A.)

The biggest problem with Walmart is that in some communities they are the largest employer. They don't have to pay a living wage because they know that people have no choice but to come work for them. The health plans at Walmart are high, but if you need health insurance.......you have no choice. I think that the best thing for Walmart employees would be to unionize but Wallyworld will not allow this.
