UnitedHealthcare®, the health benefits business of UnitedHealth Group, and Walgreens will open 14 UnitedHealthcare Medicare services centers within Walgreens stores in five metropolitan areas as part of a multiyear agreement. The Minnetonka, MN-based benefits provider and Deerfield, IL-based retailer will roll out Medicare centers in the Las Vegas, Phoenix, Cleveland, Denver and Memphis markets in January.
At the in-store centers, Walgreens customers can learn more about Medicare, meet with service advocates to discuss UnitedHealthcare plan benefits and enroll in plans. UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage members can also make an appointment for an in-store annual wellness visit.
Walgreens and UnitedHealthcare are also collaborating on the new AARP®Medicare Advantage Walgreens plans from UnitedHealthcare. “Through strategic partnerships like this, Walgreens store locations can offer comprehensive services tailored to the specific needs of the communities we serve that are conveniently accessible alongside our pharmacy services,” said Rick Gates, SVP, pharmacy and healthcare at Walgreens.
