INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Tuesday’s business headlines.
Eli Lilly & Company
Eli Lilly and Company is accused making it harder for lower-income patients to get discount drugs under a federal program.
The $340 billion program is in danger after Eli Lilly and Company announced it would not provide drugs to clinics unless they administer them on-site or through a single contract pharmacy – a hurdle that makes it more difficult for patients to receive discounted Eli Lilly drugs, according to doctors, pharmacists and clinic administrators.
Other manufacturers, including AstraZeneca and Novartis have since followed.
An Eli Lilly spokesperson told the Chicago Tribune that the program is broken, that it’s a profit engine for hospitals rather than passing along the discount to patients.
TMobile said a security occurred that saw “customer information” was improperly accessed.
The company added the breach, reported to have impacted approximately 200,000 customers, did not include financial information, such as names on the account, credit card information, social security numbers, tax ID, passwords or pins.
However, phone numbers may have been accessed.
Even after the COVID-19 vaccine becomes widely available, many companies plan to continue hiring remote positions.
FlexJobs, a subscription service for job seeksers, compiled a list of the careers with the most recent remote jobs.
The top three are jobs in marketing, administrative and human resources and recruiting.
Pet Masks, a New York City-based company, saw their sales increase by about 500% as the virus spread across the country.
The company sells masks in three different sizes that can be fitted to either cats or dogs. Each mask reportedly costs $25.
