CVS' 'blacklist' of some doctors sparks outcry, legal action
Two months ago, a small number of doctors in Florida received an unsigned letter from CVS/pharmacy informing them that the company's pharmacists would no longer fill prescriptions they write for painkillers and other powerful, addictive drugs. The letter, which some have referred to as a "blacklist," has been criticized as discriminatory, and at least one Orlando doctor is firing back with legal action, claiming CVS has essentially pegged him as a criminal.
