Reportedly, UnitedHealthcare and Walgreens are set to launch 14 UnitedHealthcare Medicare services centers within Walgreen stores in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Cleveland, Denver, and Memphis markets in January 2020. The initiative which is part of a multiyear agreement between the companies will allow Walgreens customers to learn more about Medicare, discuss their UnitedHealthcare plan and even enroll in plans. UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage members will be privileged to make appointments for an in-store wellness visit making care, tests and treatment easily available.
