The nation's largest retailer may be working on plans to become the largest healthcare provider.

National Public Radio has published a leaked document sent from Walmart to various healthcare providers that says the company intends to open primary care clinics in 3,500 stores by 2014.

The opening of the clinics would coincide with the year that President Obama's health care overhaul kicks in, meaning millions more people would have health insurance.

Walmart is denying the plans, saying the document is overblown and incorrect.
