Frequently Asked Questions About Alleged Collusion of CVS Health® Subsidiaries

What was the primary goal of the alleged scheme?

According to a whistleblower, multiple CVS Health® subsidiaries worked together with pharmaceutical manufacturers to prevent consumers from accessing generic drugs in an attempt to increase profits.

By pushing customers to buy branded medications as opposed to readily available generic options, CVS® could rake in higher rebates from drug companies, some of which were sent as clawbacks to CVS Health® subsidiaries.

Patients were also often kept in the dark about potential authorized generic medications or identical drugs that are produced by the same manufacturer but offered at a lower cost-all of which violate Medicare regulations and state law.

Which customers were hurt the worst?

The fraudulent scheme is believed to have disproportionately affected elderly patients with end-stage renal failure.

Plus, many beneficiaries of the SilverScript® Part D program went without critical treatment because they were unable to access generic versions of necessary drugs at affordable costs.

The company felt that SilverScripts® Part D customers were less likely to complain about the potential costs because many receive subsidies to cover their medication expenses.

But patients covered by private health insurance were also allegedly subject to the CVS-drug manufacturer scheme. 

Can anyone bring a claim for injuries against CVS and pharmaceutical manufacturers?

Yes, by joining lawsuits against CVS and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

While the average person can't typically afford to sue a large organization or company when they feel they have been injured or wronged in some way, a mass tort action can be an effective means for a group of people injured by the same or similar conduct to come together to sue a larger entity.
