Allergan Settles Eye Doctor Kickback Suit For $13M
Law360, Los Angeles (June 29, 2017, 9:17 PM EDT) -- Allergan Inc. plans to pay $13 million to the federal government and 19 states to end a False Claims Act suit in Pennsylvania that accused the company of shelling out kickbacks to eye doctors to boost sales of its drugs, the whistleblowers’ attorneys said Thursday.
The long-running suit was filed in 2009 by two doctors, Herbert J. Nevyas and Anita Nevyas-Wallace, who alleged on behalf of the governments that the eye care products the doctors had been sweet-talked into prescribing were paid for by Medicare and Medicaid health insurance programs, court records show.
