Laura R., a pharmacy associate at Store 5735 in Grovetown, Ga., hadn’t felt right in 12 years. She suffered severe headaches and fatigue. Nothing was helping her symptoms despite many tests and consultations with different neurologists.
That all changed when Laura gained access to Grand Rounds as part of the Walmart health plan.
Grand Rounds offers expert medical second opinions and helps with finding a highly-rated doctor to see in person. It’s a benefit provided to associates and their enrolled family members on Walmart HRA, HRA High, Select Network and HSA medical plans. With Grand Rounds, each associate is assigned a care coordinator to take care of the logistics, from booking appointments to collecting medical records. Plan participants can access Grand Rounds wherever they are via the mobile app.
Today, Laura is extremely pleased with the second opinion she received thanks to Grand Rounds. Her care coordinator found and set an appointment with a physician at a renowned national medical center. The physician diagnosed her condition as hyperparathyroidism, which is caused by a tumor on the parathyroid gland. It was non-cancerous and—once removed—she immediately felt better.
“No one dug nearly as deep as this specialist did. She actually figured out what the problem was,” Laura says. “Grand Rounds gave me my own care team that was there for me every step of the way. The staff physician would call me once or twice a week to check on how I was feeling. One of the things I appreciated the most was having direct contact with my doctor and team at any time.”
Consider using Grand Rounds when you’ve received a diagnosis or have been recommended for surgery or a form of treatment. Many associates have already used Grand Rounds and are happy they did.
