Want Health Insurance? Head to Wal-Mart

In the following video, Motley Fool heath care bureau chief Brenton Flynn talks about one surprising new move coming out of Wal-Mart in California. While this company has long been troubled with media reports of poor employee relations, particularly with regard to health care, Wal-Mart will now be moving into signing up customers for health insurance at special in-store kiosks, under Obamacare's insurance exchanges. Brenton tells us why this move could make sense and what it means for insurers and managed care companies operating in the state.

Wal-Mart's rise over the past two decades has been nothing short of amazing, but is its reign at the top almost over?
