Find a doctor: Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds makes it easy to connect with a doctor who’s nearby, in-network, and has the best skills, experience, and quality ratings for your needs. Plus they offer one-on-one guidance, will explain your diagnosis, and can even book your appointments.

It’s available at no cost to anyone enrolled in the Premier Plan, Contribution Plan, Saver Plan, Select Local Plan, Local Plan, or the eCommerce PPO Plan. Just visit grandrounds.com/walmart or get the app from your app store or call 800-941-1384.

For associates who work in Central Florida, Dallas/Fort Work or Northwest Arkansas, Grand Rounds will only be available for second opinions. 

Ask your health care advisor

If you're enrolled in the Premier Plan, Contribution Plan, Saver Plan, Local Plan, Select Local Plan, or eCommerce PPO Plan, a healthcare advisor can make your healthcare experience easier, faster, and better by helping you:

  • understand your plan and the benefits it provides.
  • get help with a claim
  • resolve administrative questions and concerns.
  • get precertification before you receive care (precertification is required for certain services by Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, and HealthSCOPE and for all inpatient admissions by BlueAdvantage)

The number to call for your health care advisor depends on your medical plan administrator, which is based on where you work. You’ll find it on the back of your plan ID card.

If you’re included in the Personal Health Care Assistant group in North Carolina and South Carolina, call Grand Rounds instead.

Please note: In some locations, you may have access to a special “Alt network” within the BlueAdvantage network.
