Blowing the whistle can be a daunting task, especially for an employee working for a large corporation like CVS. However, it can be rewarding on many levels.
Based on a complaint filed by a CVS employee in Minnesota alleging that CVS overcharged for Medicade perscriptions, CVS has agreed to pay the federal and state governments more than $17 million.

Following the lawsuit, CVS has also agreed to government monitoring for the next three years. The CVS pharmasist responsible for exposing the illegal practices will receive $2.5 million in compensation.
