Hundreds of thousands of people since 2008 might have been deliberately overcharged for generic drugs by CVS Health, according to a lawsuit filed last week in federal court in San Francisco. The class-action lawsuit alleges that CVS intended that its Health Savings Pass program, which gives discounts on generic drugs to customers who either are uninsured or choose not to use their coverage, “would serve as a mechanism to hide CVS’s true usual and customary prices from third-party [payers].”
