The medical group for Walmart Health has filed paperwork to do business in more than a dozen more states – and a spokesperson told Insider that the moves are not related to physical clinics.

Instead, the preparation regards the retail giant’s pending acquisition of telehealth vendor MeMD earlier this year.

“We’ve expressed our interest in offering telehealth via an acquisition that is pending regulatory clearance, and these filings are related to that effort, not physical Walmart Health locations,” a Walmart spokesperson said to Insider‘s Shelby Livingston.
