On the conference call, it's indicated Bluebird will move into check-writing in 2013. Monthly fee $0, Set up fee $0, Direct Deposit fee $0. (PR)

    One might wager that some serious arm twisting for employees to take up this option will be applied. Given their management philosophy, at least all those who wish to progress in the company will have these accounts.

    Yea I'm sure its a conspiracy. Walmart doing something cheap is unheard of. They should run the health care system.

    With their cash flow, it makes perfect sense. However, knowing something of the corporation, the opportunity for corrupt practices is also a potential that should not be underestimated. They are not a group that works by the old school of fair practices, let us say.
