Abstract

In 1993, [name removed] was forced to stop working because of growing fatigue related to AIDS. He discovered that his home care company, Caremark International Inc., was charging his insurance provider, Prudential Insurance Co., between $200,000 and $750,000 in excess of fair market value for drugs and services. [Name removed] filed a lawsuit accusing Caremark of engaging in a nationwide kickback scheme. Caremark agreed to settle, and [name removed] agreed to return to Caremark for treatment. The settlement does not affect criminal investigations against Caremark in Minnesota and Michigan.
