CVS faces class-action lawsuit for disclosing customers’ HIV status

Three unidentified plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit claiming pharmacy giant CVS accidentally disclosed the HIV status of 6000 customers in Ohio.

The lawsuit says that Fiserv, a company the pharmacy hired to send a letter to some customers about their participation in the state’s HIV drug assistance program, used an envelope that allowed anyone to their HIV status through the clear window on the envelope.

Plaintiffs also allege that CVS did not notify customers who had been affected. Fiserv is also named in the lawsuit as a defendant.

One of the plaintiffs, who lives in a small town, says in the suit that he isn’t solely concerned about the repercussions to his own safety and livelihood, he’s worried  “friends and family run the risk of being stigmatized just by being seen with him.”
