Commerce fines CVS Caremark $500,000 after 2022 case alleging violations of Pharmacy Benefit Manager

The Minnesota Department of Commerce today announced it has levied a $500,000 penalty against Caremark after alleging that Caremark violated state law prohibiting the steering of patients to pharmacies or mail-order prescription services in which Caremark had an ownership interest. Under that practice, some Caremark enrollees complained of being forced to drive up to 130 miles to fill prescriptions.
