LAWSUIT: CVS Pharmacies accused of hiking up drug prices for those with insurance

Leading retail pharmacy chain, CVS, is being implicated in an overcharging scheme which used “clawbacks” to jack up prices for supposedly inexpensive generic drugs. According to the plaintiff, Megan Schultz, some of the “affected” prescriptions include lithium, naproxen, and zolpidem. Lawyers of Schultz have said that the public remains unaware of this repulsive behavior, in which pharmacy chains charge more for customers who use their insurance to pay for generic prescriptions. The class-action lawsuit also included Walgreens in its description, citing the company’s apparent lack of ethics as it blatantly overcharged customers through industry middlemen.
