Apple

Apple is launching a group of health clinics called AC Wellness for its employees and their families this spring, according to several sources familiar with the company's plans.

The company quietly published a website, acwellness.com, with more details about its initiative and a careers page listing jobs including primary care doctor, exercise coach and care navigator, as well as a phlebotomist to administer lab tests on-site.

This new primary care group - a group of clinical staff that is run independently from Apple but is dedicated to Apple employees - will initially only serve Apple's employees in Santa Clara County, where its headquarters are located. Initially, it has two clinics in the county.

Scrip healthcare.

This is insanity.

Apple even offers a health plan to their employees (as most large corporations do)


Health plan can be very tricky thing.
For example, in Russia (and, AFAIK, a lot of CEE countries) Oracle select insurance company with cheap price but with most clinics on list below average level & only basic health issues covered. So most Oracle employees I know prefer to take money compensation instead of health plan - this way they able to pay (at least partial) for health services they really need in medical centres they trust.
