States Sue Generic Drug Makers Over Alleged Price-Fixing Schemes

 

BOSTON (AP) — Attorneys general from more than 40 states are alleging the nation’s largest generic drug manufacturers conspired to artificially inflate and manipulate prices for more than 100 different generic drugs, including treatments for diabetes, cancer, arthritis and other medical conditions.

 

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Connecticut on Friday, also names 15 individual senior executives responsible for sales, marketing and pricing.

Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, a Democrat, said investigators obtained evidence implicating 20 firms.

 

“We have hard evidence that shows the generic drug industry perpetrated a multibillion dollar fraud on the American people,” Tong said. “We have emails, text messages, telephone records and former company insiders that we believe will prove a multi-year conspiracy to fix prices and divide market share for huge numbers of generic drugs.”

 

Tong said the investigation had uncovered a primary reason why the cost of health care — and specifically generic prescription drugs — has been so high in this country.

Did you see 60 Minutes tonight? It predates the "mute" President that upsets you.


No Didn't See It - watching the Bruins Annihilate Carolina - what happened?

 

 


They had the AG of Connecticut who explained that, as I said, this is a situation that predates the "mute" President that concerns you and that various States have been working on it and are very close to a lawsuit.
