340B administrator Sentry Data Systems sued CVS pharmacy alleging that since CVS aquired Wellpartner, the company has engaged in unlawful tying, using its status as a “must have” 340B contract pharmacy to require that covered hospitals also use Wellpartner as their program administrator. The tying allegations are exactly the type of anticompetitive conduct that concerns antitrust enforcers following a vertical merger.
