11:51 EDTESRXExpress Scripts' Medco to pay $7.9M to resolve kickback allegations
Medco Health Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the pharmacy benefit manager Express Scripts Holding Company (ESRX), of Missouri, has agreed to pay the government $7.9M to settle allegations that it engaged in a kickback scheme in violation of the False Claims Act, the Justice Department announced. Medco provides pharmacy benefit management services to clients who receive subsidies under the Medicare Retiree Drug Subsidy program. The settlement resolves allegations that Medco solicited remuneration from AstraZeneca, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, in exchange for identifying Nexium as the “sole and exclusive” proton pump inhibitor on certain of Medco’s prescription drug lists known as formularies. The United States alleged that Medco received some or all of the remuneration from AstraZeneca in the form of reduced prices on the following AstraZeneca drugs: Prilosec, Toprol XL and Plendil. The United States contended that this kickback arrangement between Medco and AstraZeneca (AZN) violated the Federal Anti-Kickback statute, and thereby caused the submission of false or fraudulent claims for Nexium to the Retiree Drug Subsidy Program. In January 2015, the United States and AstraZeneca reached a $7.9M settlement to resolve kickback allegations arising out of the same conduct. This civil settlement resolves a lawsuit filed under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provision of the False Claims Act, which allows private citizens with knowledge of false claims to bring civil actions on behalf of the government and to share in any recovery. The lawsuit was filed by former AstraZeneca employees Paul DiMattia and F. Folger Tuggle, whose share of the settlement has not been determined. The settlement with Medco was the result of a coordinated effort among the Civil Division, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the District of Delaware and HHS-OIG.
