    By Jef Feeley | Bloomberg Dozens of lawsuits are challenging the long-standing belief that pregnant women can safely take acetaminophen, an over-the-counter drug used in Tylenol and generic pain medications. Women have filed 87 complaints in seven states against sellers of store-branded pain relievers, including Walmart Inc., CVS Health Corp. and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. Citing new studies linking the drug to increased risk of developmental issues in babies, the plaintiffs blame their children’s autism, attention-deficit problems or hyperactivity on significant doses of acetaminophen taken during pregnancy. While the women say they should have been warned of the risks, the companies dispute the claim acetaminophen may harm fetal development. And some doctor groups, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, insist the medication is safe to take during pregnancy, saying the research is inconclusive and found no direct relationship to neurodevelopmental disorders. Makers and sellers of acetaminophen “should have paid greater attention to the growing research linking it to developmental issues,” said Melissa McEvoy, a 42-year-old plaintiff in California who says she took acetaminophen to treat headaches when she...

    (CNN)The state of West Virginia has reached settlements with Walmart and CVS totaling more than $147 million to resolve opioid lawsuits, Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said Tuesday in a news conference.CVS agreed to a settlement of more than $82.5 million and Walmart agreed to pay more than $65 million to settle the civil complaints "that alleged the pharmacies failed to maintain effective controls as a distributor against diversion that contributed to the oversupply of opioids in the state," the attorney general's office said in a news release.

    CVS Health Corp and Walmart Inc have agreed to pay $147.5 million to settle West Virginia's claims over their alleged roles in the state's opioid crisis, state attorney general Patrick Morrisey said Tuesday. West Virginia had been prepared to proceed to trial on September 26 against those two companies and Walgreens Boots Alliance. The state had accused the pharmacy chains of fueling the deadly opioid epidemic through their allegedly lax oversight of prescription pills sold in the state. 'These settlements won't bring back the lives lost from the opioid epidemic, but these and other settlements will hopefully provide significant help to those affected the most by this crisis in our state,' Morrisey said.  Walgreens has not settled, and a trial has been rescheduled for June 2023.  'We believe that we have a very strong case against Walgreens,' Morrisey said at a news conference. 'We're going to pursue that quite vigorously.'  The state has been particularly hard hit by the epidemic, with a per capita opioid mortality rate over three times the national average in 2020, according to data from the...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi cruised through the Ocean State on Sunday to stump for underdog governor hopeful Helena Foulkes ahead of the Tuesday primary battle. Hailing Foulkes as the "full package," the top Democrat in Congress muscled through the nation's smallest state during a campaign event in which she touted Foulkes's job-creating credentials and recounted fondly Foulkes’s late mother, Martha Dodd Buonanno, who was the House speaker's college roommate. FILL-IN RHODE ISLAND GOV. DAN MCKEE COULD LOSE SEPT. 13 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY: POLL “If I didn’t think that Helena would be a great governor of Rhode Island — if I didn’t think that she could win this — I would have never encouraged her to put herself in the arena,” Pelosi proclaimed, per WPRI. Pelosi held back tears when discussing Buonanno, who died of cancer in 2009, as “one of my dearest friends — the first person I met when we both showed up in college.” Foulkes's kinship with Pelosi has given her much-needed ammunition at a critical time in the race. The duo appeared before a...
    New York (CNN Business)Many aspects of drug stores and supermarkets feel like they're of another era. But perhaps the most retro part of these stores is the photo-printing equipment.In a time when most photos don't leave the confines of a smartphone, CVS (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), Walmart (WMT), Albertsons and other chains still offer photo prints, greeting cards, books, film processing and other services.Who needs to print photos anymore? Well, there's still demand from some customers: Photo services bring traffic into these retailers' stores, particularly during the peak holiday, graduation and wedding seasons.More than 50% of photo prints made this year will come from a retail store, totaling about $786 million in sales, said David Haueter, a longtime photo industry analyst and the founder of consulting and market research firm Rise Above Research.Around 4.2 billion 4'' x 6" prints alone will be developed at stores this year, he added.Read More"People aren't printing as much as they used to, but there are still people who like to print," said Haueter.Kodak machines are still going strong at CVS.Retro technology and older gadgets have...

    Updated COVID-19 booster shots targeting the latest dominant Omicron subvariants are here and available at numerous locations. “The upgraded shots will help protect you in the upcoming weeks and months,” Orange County health officer Dr. Regina Chinsio-Kwong said in a briefing Tuesday. “I want everybody to have a really good holiday season.

    Is CVS open on Labor day? What are their holiday hours? Are there any notable holiday sales? Labor Day is the last long weekend of the summer for Americans, making it one of the last opportunities for many Americans to barbeque with friends and family, go to the lake, and soak up the sun. It is especially special this year, as it lines up with the first weekend of college football. With all the potential outings and gatherings that could be taking place over the weekend, there are countless things that could be needed at the last minute.

    The Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit alleging that the CVS-owned MinuteClinic fired nurse practitioner Paige Casey from her northern Virginia job after Casey refused to violate her religious beliefs and provide “abortion-causing drugs.” “Casey’s religious objection never posed an issue to coworkers, patients, or supervisors, and just two days before she was fired, she received a merit-based pay increase. For three and a half years, CVS respected Casey’s religious beliefs by allowing her to decline to provide or facilitate the use of abortion-inducing drugs. But in January, CVS informed her that they would no longer accommodate her faith and fired her a few months later — directly violating Virginia’s Conscience Clause,” the ADF said in a press release. According to the lawsuit complaint, in December 2021 Casey, who follows the Roman Catholic faith, submitted a letter to CVS requesting a religious exemption “reiterating her religious belief that life begins at conception and that she therefore cannot participate in providing abortion or abortion-causing drugs, including hormonal contraceptives.” The ADF press release says the Catholic faith also prohibits Casey from providing...
    The Quincy Police Department is asking the public to help them locate a missing man who did not come home after being dropped off at CVS in Allston.  Tommy Luong, 19, was dropped off at the CVS on Friday, Sept. 2, Quincy Police said on Twitter. He is described as standing 5’6”, weighing 135 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.  Luong is also labeled as endangered because he has trouble communicating and may be non-verbal, police said.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Quincy Police at 617-479-1212 or 911. 
    A Virginia nurse practitioner claimed she was fired from her clinic job because she refused to give contraceptives or Plan B to patients based on her religious beliefs.  Paige Casey, who is Catholic, was fired on April 1, 2022, after she refused to follow CVS MinuteClinic's policy - which was updated in August 2021 - that employees were no longer allowed to deny prescribing Plan B or birth control to patients.   Casey's religious exemption was granted from when she started at the clinic in 2018 until CVS 'abruptly stopped' accepting her exemption in December 2021, the lawsuit read.  She reportedly asked her supervisors for another exemption in December after the policy change, and she was reportedly told by company officials in January and March they would not approve it.  She was let go after she continued to refuse to prescribe the medication.  In her original request in 2018, she allegedly told CVS that her religion forbade her from 'prescribing or facilitating the use of a drug or device that prevents or can prevent implantation of a fertilized egg.'  CVS Health Representative...

    A federal judge in Cleveland has ordered CVS, Walgreens and Walmart to pay two Ohio counties damages over their opioid distribution, a week after a judge in San Francisco ruled Walgreens CAN be held responsible for the city's crisis. U.S. District Judge Dan Polster awarded $650 million in damages on Wednesday over the way the national pharmacy chains distributed opioids to their communities. Judge Polster said in his ruling that the money will be used to the fight the opioid crisis in Lake and Trumbull counties outside Cleveland. Attorneys for the counties put the total price tag at $3.3 billion for the damage done. The judge admonished the three companies, saying they 'squandered the opportunity to present a meaningful plan to abate the nuisance' after proceedings last spring to determine what the counties were owed. Lake County is to receive $306 million over 15 years. Trumbull County is to receive $344 million over the same period. Polster ordered the companies to immediately fork over nearly $87 million to cover the first two years of payments, but it was unclear whether they...

Polster presided over separate proceedings in May to determine how much money should be awarded.The lawsuit, which was initially filed in 2018, was part of the federal multi-district litigation created that year to address the manifold claims against opioid manufacturers and distributors.The counties alleged that the pharmacies "abused their position of special trust and responsibility" as registered dispensers of controlled drugs, and in so doing "fostered a black market for prescription opioids," the complaint reads.Read MorePolster wrote in his ruling that the awarded damages are meant to "address a small piece of a terrible and tenacious and escalating national tragedy.""Even if the...

    In this article CVSA CVS Pharmacy store is seen in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York.Shannon Stapleton | ReutersCVS said Wednesday that it plans to acquire or take a stake in a primary-care company by the end of the year, as competition heats up with Amazon and Walgreens.

    According to the lawsuit, Badeaux violated the Minnesota Human Rights Act when he refused to fill the prescription. The Act outlaws sex discrimination, including instances related to pregnancy and childbirth. Aitkin County District Judge David Hermerding has already ruled that Badeaux and his lawyers may not invoke his First Amendment religious rights, though Badeaux will have an opportunity to explain his religious objections to emergency contraception without confusing "the jury into thinking this is a religious freedom contest." “The issue for the jury is not defendant’s constitutional rights,” Judge Hermerding wrote. “It is whether he deliberately misled, obfuscated and blocked Ms. Anderson’s path to obtaining Ella.” Gender Justice — a group which claims that "[r]eligious beliefs are not a license to target, harass, or discriminate against or deny services to someone because of who they love or how they identify" — has provided Anderson with legal counsel. Jury selection began on Monday, and the trial itself should conclude by Friday. CVS was also named in the initial lawsuit, but the plaintiff and CVS have since reached an undisclosed settlement.
    The New York State attorney general is suing CVS Health for an alleged scheme to force health care providers to incur millions in additional costs and divert funds away from underserved communities.  New York Attorney General Letitia James announced the lawsuit on Thursday, July 28, saying the company violated antitrust laws and harmed safety net hospitals, which provide care to underserved communities. James said CVS required the safety net hospitals to exclusively used CVS' own company, Wellpartner, to process and obtain federal subsidies on prescriptions filled at its pharmacies. This forced safety net providers to incur millions of dollars in costs, as they had to hire and train staff and make changes to their data systems, according to the announcement. James said ultimately, the scheme deprived the providers of federal funding that could have been used to expand patient care. “While safety net health care providers are tackling public health crises and helping underserved communities, CVS is robbing them out of millions of desperately needed funds that could improve patient care,” James said. “CVS’s actions are a clear example of a...
    A company is expanding a nationwide recall of its flavored laxatives, because of microbial contamination, which it said could be behind three reported cases of serious adverse reactions. Consuming the laxatives is unsafe and risks infection that could lead to “serious, life-threatening adverse health consequences,” according to a news release from the Food and Drug Administration. Anyone who’s immunocompromised and consumes Vi-Jon LLC’s infected laxatives is at increased risk of serious health complications.

    Share this: The Attorney General sued CVS Health Corporation on Friday, July 29, under violations of antitrust law and harm done to safety net hospitals in New York. Allegedly, CVS owned and operated a subsidiary it used to obtain federal subsidies on prescriptions, also draining public funds by forcing safety net hospitals to exclusively use Wellpartner, a third-party administrator (TPA), and incur millions in additional costs through retraining and hiring staff, while CVS benefited through its subsidiary. “While safety net health care providers are tackling public health crises and helping underserved communities, CVS is robbing them of millions of desperately needed funds that could improve patient care,” said Attorney General Letitia James. The federal 340B program allows safety net hospitals and clinics to purchase drugs at discounted prices and allot funding elsewhere. Hospitals who use the 340B program must contract with pharmacies, and the suit alleges that CVS never contracted with New York safety hospitals who use Wellpartner, a violation of New York antitrust law. The absence of a contract means that hospitals and clinics who receive 340B subsidies could...

    CVS Health is asking pharmacists in some states to verify that a few of the prescriptions they provide will not be used end a pregnancy. A spokesman said Thursday that the drugstore chain recently started doing this for methotrexate and misoprostol, two drugs used in medication abortions but also to treat other conditions. Spokesman Mike DeAngelis said the policy started the first week in July in Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Oklahoma, and Texas. The drugstore chain’s request comes after the U.S. Supreme Court last month overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that had provided a constitutional right to abortion. The ruling is expected to lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states. DeAngelis said state laws that restrict the dispensing of medications used for abortions have forced the company to start the validations. He noted that some of the laws come with criminal penalties. The drugstore chain, which is based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, is asking care providers to help by including their diagnosis on the prescriptions. DeAngelis said CVS Health will still fill prescriptions...
