Philip Morris USA

A group of Marlboro smokers filed a lawsuit seeking class action status in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, New York, against Altria Group Inc.'s Philip Morris USA, stating that the company should pay for annual screening tests that detect early-stage lung cancer. The class action lawsuit would include smokers in New York State who are age 50 or over, have been smoking at least a pack of Marlboros a day for 20 years and have not been diagnosed with lung cancer.

The lawsuit seeks to have Philip Morris pay for low-dose CT scans (which most insurance companies do not cover - approximately $500 per test) by proving that the design of Marlboro cigarettes was defective and could be made safer.
