He is seeking unspecified damages for negligence
A Long Island man is suing CVS after a pharmacist allegedly blabbed about his use of an erectile-dysfunction drug to his wife.
The New York Post reports Michael Feinberg had a prescription for Viagra that he would pay for himself and worked for it not to go through his insurance.
When Feinbergs wife called the pharmacy chains Merrick store to get word on one of her own prescriptions she had filed, the employee opened up about her husbands secret, the Post reported, citing the lawsuit.
Feinberg claims the pharmacy chain violated his privacy under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Now that word has leaked to his wife, Feinberg told the Post that his marriage is breaking down.
He is seeking unspecified damages for negligence.
A spokesman for CVS told the Post the chain has the highest priority on protecting the privacy of those we serve.
Now the world knows.
HIPAA violation! HIPAA violation!
Well, as soon as he filed a lawsuit it was ‘official’ public knowledge............
Smarmy TV host announces that, "If Mrs. Edna T. of North Meadow Street in Hampton calls in and pays the studio 500 pounds, they will not reveal the name of her lover in Bolton. Yes, if she acts quickly, her husband Richard and her two children Albert and little Catherine need never know the name of her lover in Bolton!"
As soon as his wife found out, due to CVS, it no longer mattered who else knew. He did it to keep the prescription from her.
And now they are getting divorced. The wife will get whatever profit her husband gets from the lawsuit, you watch.
Greedy lawyers are pleased all way around!
Brilliantly put! Especially if wifey is not the beneficiary of said erections.
Love the nick!
I would surmise that Mr. Feinberg was sexually active, but not with his wife.
“HIPAA violation! HIPAA violation!”
Yup. I have to renew my HIPPA training every two years simply because we supply business services to medical providers. This is a clear violation.
I don’t buy it. Entrapment.
CVS still took the bait, but I SERIOUSLY DOUBT that his use use of Viagra is breaking up the marriage...that’s the giveaway.
I am of the opinion that secrets don’t belong in a marriage.
He wood if he could, be he cant so he uses viagra
Genius should have used a different pharmacy. But he had one thing on his mind . . .
The guy didn’t need Viagra for his wife?
Another poster nailed it... Maybe he wasn’t using the Viagra with her.
You would think after 3 hours she would have became suspicious.
Absolutely agree. Just don't tell my wife.
“Another poster nailed it... Maybe he wasnt using the Viagra with her.”
Yea...I saw that, thanks. Makes more sense than my (conspiracy) theory.
But if he had HALF A BRAIN, he would have gotten those pills at a different pharmacy.
