The pharmaceutical industry is held in low esteem by most Americans.
Complaints of releasing customer’s medical records to police and government agencies without warrants are now added to accusations of gross price gouging.
According to the Washington Examiner, which cited the Monday release of a Congressional Investigative Report, “Several major pharmacies” have released confidential medical information to “local law enforcement and federal investigators without warrants.”
Disclosed information includes prescription history and medical records. Additionally, the report revealed that pharmacies released this information without notifying the customer before or after the fact.
Offending companies include RiteAid, CVS Pharmacy, Kroger, Walgreens, Boots Alliance, Cigna, Optum Rx, Walmart, and Amazon Pharmacy.
