Sam’s Club offering health care?

Now Sam’s Club is offering full service!  Tire rotation AND health care (do you hear my sarcasm?).  For $99/year Sam’s Club offers a health care plan that includes “at-home screening tests” (I am unsure what these tests might be . . . do you draw your own blood?), “hotline to nurses, health alerts and reminders and sends a summary of the plan to each patient’s physician.”

This is reportedly intended to add to a patient’s care. . . it seems disjointed and takes patients  further away from a “medical home.”  (That’s me. . . my patient’s medical home is me–not Sam’s).

Concerning. . . hmmmmmm.
