The Washington Examiner has a good article on how the health plans offered by Walmart are cheaper and offer more coverage than Obamacare. The article talks about the better cost of the Walmart plans:

A Journal of the American Medical Association analysis from September showed that unsubsidized Obamacare enrollees will face monthly premiums that are five to nine times higher than Walmart premiums.

  • JAMA found the unsubsidized premium for a nonsmoking gouple age 60 can cost $1,365 per month versus the Walmart cost of about $134 for the same couple.
  • The medical journal reported a 30-year-old smoker would pay up to $428 per month, in contrast to roughly $70 each month for a Walmart employee.
  • A family of four could pay a $962 premium, but the same Walmart family member would pay about $160.

The article also talks about the better coverage in the Walmart plans and provides this infographic showing how many more doctors and hospitals are available through the Walmart plans:
