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,, 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.

I notice that my comment was voted down and I'm trying to understand why. It was a respectful reply in which I tried to include cogent points, clear rationale, and explanations of things others might be unaware of (such as large companies like Apple self-funding employee health insurance rather than buying it from a third party).

I'm not here to detract from the discussion, so I'd appreciate it if someone could explain what was objectionable.

P.S. I hope it wasn't just because I didn't jump on the "Apple sucks!" bandwagon and that OSNews discussions rise above that kind of thing.
