Walmart Adds Kidney Transplants At Mayo To Centers Of Excellence Program

Walmart is adding kidney transplants to the list of specialized medical procedures it will cover for its workers under its now 22-year-old Centers of Excellence Program for organ transplantation.

The world’s largest retailer in 1997 began its Centers of Excellence program as a way to get organ transplants to workers in need. In a conference call Wednesday with employers put on by the Catalyst for Payment Reform, Lisa Woods, Walmart’s senior director of U.S. healthcare, said centers of excellence would be performing kidney transplants as a covered benefit starting in 2020.
