Retail giant Walmart got $12.6 million in federal health stimulus cash intended for doctors and hospitals, but decided to give it back | Business Insider

The retail giant Walmart has returned $12.6 million to the federal government after receiving money from a fund designated to help medical providers struggling from the coronavirus pandemic. The company provides healthcare services and has even helped set up coronavirus testing sites, but still returned the money. They were amongst over 500,00 providers to receive a payout for health care services. However, Walmart says they did not request the funds and would rather it go to hospitals or struggling health care providers, stating their company does not need it. The Department of Health and Human Services funneled $30 billion to go out in relief checks between April 10th and April 17th.
