A news show last nite featured Walmart. Didn't catch all of it, but the crux was that a Walmart worker was seriously injured in an accident. The injured family won a lawsuit from whomever caused the accident. Walmart, in turn, sued the accident victim back for all the money their health benefits had paid. The Walmart Health policy has a disclaimer that allows them to do that. So by rights, they were correct, and the victim has been ordered to reimburse Walmart (or the Health policy) in excess of $200,000 ... money that had been awarded for the care of the victim. The news show really made Walmart out bad ... really, as they should have ... it's pretty sad. Hard to believe they would do that, given they make BILLIONS, and given the bad publicity they had to know it would generate. Not to mention the dire straits they left that poor family in. The talked about all the people around the land that are banding together to boycott Walmart.
So let me see if I got this straight. A Walmart employee is in an automobile accident. They need extensive urgent care and Walmart's employee medical insurance provides it.
Later on, another party agrees to accept responsibolity for the accident and pays for the medical costs.
Why wouldn't Walmart expect to be repaid for the claims? The medical bills were paid for the accident victims. Why would the victims expect to be paid TWICE for the same set of bills?
You Walgreens pimps are simply amazing on this message board. And to think, some of you morons actually seem to believe that posting this kind of vapid stupidity will somehow improve your share price.
Maybe it would be appropriate to apply your logic to the pharmacy misfill deaths reported by USA Today and, thus, infer that Walgreens (or other drug retailers involved) should pay its victims twice, just to be a good corporate citizen as measured by the "Standards of Excellence" put forth on this message board?
Yeah I know Walgreens was 36th on the top fifty list, but I found WalkMart on the list, you just have to page down a little bit further. It wasn't in the top fifty, but it was on the list! It showed up at 1,224,962. Still it made the list! Hey I decided that since you have to WALK so far to get to everything in a WalMart, you should call it WALKMART! I am so clever!
