Guide to the Walmart Care Clinic
If you live in select Southern states, you're able to experience extensive health services at affordable prices when you visit a Walmart Care Clinic. Services include what you need to keep yourself and your family healthy and boost your well-being. Whether you have insurance or you don't, learn why you're in good hands when you step into a Walmart Care Clinic.
The Walmart Care Clinic is different from other retail clinics because it's a primary care office that takes care of more than just injuries or lab tests. Staff at Care Clinics offer the same services you'd receive from any primary care facility.
- Primary care: You can choose Care Clinic to be your primary care provider. If you need specialty or more advanced care, we'll make the appropriate referrals, as would any primary care practice.
- Illnesses and injuries: Acute illnesses and injuries can be diagnosed and treated at a Care Clinic.
- Management of ongoing conditions: A Care Clinic can help you manage certain chronic and acute conditions, such as diabetes.
- Physicals and wellness checks: Take care of your health by giving yourself an annual physical, well-woman exam, smoking cessation counseling and more at a Care Clinic.
- On-site lab tests: Care Clinic offers on-demand tests performed and results delivered during your visit, from bladder infection tests to pregnancy tests and other screenings.
- Off-site lab tests: External lab tests that require analysis by a separate lab are also available. These types of tests include everything from pap smears to PSA tests for prostate-specific antigens to vitamin D levels and more.
- Injections: If you need a birth control injection, a vitamin B-12 shot or treatment for a migraine, a licensed Care Clinic healthcare provider can administer it for you.
- Immunizations: Care Clinic nurse practitioners or other licensed professionals can offer immunizations for the flu, hepatitis A and B, measles, meningitis, chicken pox and more.
Care Clinics accept major insurance plans, including the following.
- Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas
- Medicaid GA & SC Plans
- Medicare Part B
- United Healthcare
- Walmart Associate Plan
Always check with your plan to verify your coverage with Care Clinics.

- Prescriptions: Nurse practitioners write prescriptions when appropriate.
- First visit: A medical assistant will check you in when you arrive and help you fill out necessary forms. You'll be informed of how long you'll wait in the waiting room. A nurse practitioner will bring you to a private exam room where you'll have all the time you need to share concerns and ask questions.
- Collaboration: Where required by law, a nurse practitioner will have a collaborative practice agreement with an independent physician in case there needs to be a consultation on your behalf.
