Man Sues CVS Pharmacy For Revealing His Secret Viagra Medication To His Wife.

According to the Daily Mail, “A man is suing a New York CVS pharmacy because an employee revealed his secret prescription of Viagra to his wife, which he claims then ruined his marriage.

Michael Feinberg purchased the Viagra prescription at the Merrick Road CVS in Long Island last year and told the pharmacy he would pay for the pills instead of it being put through on his insurance.

His prescription was for eight 100mg Viagra pills with five refills.

The lawsuit, obtained by the New York Post, said Feinberg specifically told a CVS employee not to put the prescription through his insurance.

But several days after filling the prescription, Feinberg claims his wife called the pharmacy about her own medication and an employee mentioned his Viagra pills.

Feinberg said in the lawsuit that his ‘marriage has broken down’ as a result of the secret but it does not elaborate on how.

The lawsuit claims the pharmacy violated his privacy because CVS did not have his permission to reveal his healthcare details under the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

It goes on to say that the pharmacy ‘improperly’ informed Feinberg’s wife that the Viagra was not being covered by insurance.

Feinberg claims in the lawsuit that his wife had no right to know about the drugs.

The negligence lawsuit is calling for unspecified damages.

Feinberg says in the suit that the ordeal has left him suffering ‘genuine, severe mental injury and emotional harm’.
