Sept. 23, 2017, I wrote CVS CEO Larry Merlo, expressing my concerns about CVS’ use of its Pharmacy Management Benefits (PBM) program to further intrude into healthcare. The letter also summarized SETMA’s extensive clinical tools for supporting the appropriate and safe prescribing of opioid medications including the electronic prescribing of controlled substances.

Sept. 28, 2017, I received a response from CVS Health’s Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer. Here is that response and my observations.

My patio is full of pots along the sides just choked full of different herbs. Hey, they are so easy to grow. And it is such a supreme treat, a real richness in life, to be able to walk out the door and clip an ingredient for a meal … truly better than a million bucks. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration.

This has been a tough weekend for any true Texan, and especially for those who make it a regular part of their lives to attend church, synagogue, Mass or other form of planned worship. Who would ever anticipate a gunman dressed in tactical gear, fully armed, walking into a small Southern Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on a beautiful Sunday morning?
