NPR and Kaiser Health News obtained a 14 page document, a “Request for Information,” which indicates Walmart is looking for partners in “becoming the largest provider of primary healthcare services in the nation.”

But, this afternoon, a Walmart executive said that the document had been “overwritten.”
