Walmart's Sam's Club is teaming up with several health care companies to offer discounts on everyday care its customers might delay or skip because of the cost.

Starting early October, Sam's Club members in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, will be able to buy one of four bundles of health care services ranging in annual fees from $50 for individuals to $240 for a family of up to six members. The pilot program could potentially be rolled out to members in all the states.

The move comes as health care costs place a growing strain on the budgets of many families and individuals, even those that have coverage.
