CVS Caremark Update

NCPA Executive Update

Dear Colleague,

It was two days before Christmas 2008 when we first formally contacted the FTC about CVS Caremark's possible anti-competitive business practices and patient privacy violations. Our letter didn't produce headlines or provoke an immediate investigation, and probably didn't cause any sleepless nights in Woonsocket either.

But how things have changed: federal and state investigations, congressional hearings, legislation, billions of dollars in lost contracts, and growing media attention. A recent headline in Fortune captures the moment, "New Troubles for CVS Caremark." We've complied a roundup with the Fortune article and other developments with an equally evocative headline,
"CVS Caremark Under Fire on Many Fronts."
