Idaho Wins Lawsuit against Pharmaceutical Companies

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s lawsuit against several major pharmaceutical companies over allegations of inflated drug prices has come to an end with the state recovering more than $28 million in damages. Attorney General Lawrence Wasden announced Tuesday that his office has completed six years of litigation against Watson Pharma, Johnson & Johnson, Merck and 30 other pharmaceutical companies. Idaho was one of several states who joined to sue the drug makers, alleging that they falsely reported the “average wholesale prices” of individual prescription drugs, and as a result, hiked the price that Medicaid had to pay for the drugs. In addition to the money, the drug makers will now give Idaho pricing data.
