I have friends that have used retail clinics to get health care for simple illnesses that are being passed around from person to person. This kind of sickness can be taken care of with a simple $4 prescription from Walmart. They charge you $25 for the exam, diagnosis, and prescription.
Health care would be a great business if it weren’t for all the sick people. Richard McCauley, MD, may have fixed that.
“If you cough, you’re in the wrong place,” he told the Ventura County Star
His store, WellnessMart, sells things like screening tests, checkups and vaccinations. McCauley doesn’t take health insurance, but he’d be glad to sell you a health insurance policy.
Nutrition counseling for a month costs $40, and vaccination for hepatitis A costs $89, the County Star says.
