Starting this fall, UnitedHealthcare's SecureHorizons Medicare managed-care plans will be marketed in more than 700 Wal-Mart stores in 30 states just before the Nov. 15 start of the seven-week open enrollment period for Medicare managed-care and prescription-drug plans.
Humana also has a marketing partnership with the giant retailer. Wal-Mart helped Humana sell 3.5 million drug plans -- second only to UnitedHealth's 4.5 million -- and double enrollment in its Medicare Advantage managed-care plans. Humana markets both its drug plan and Medicare Advantage Plan.
