A qui tam case filed in federal court in Maryland has yielded an $11 million False Claims Act settlement. According to the Department of Justice, Dava Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has agreed to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act “by misreporting drug prices in order to reduce its Medicaid Drug Rebate obligations.” The settlement resolves allegations that “Dava and its corporate predecessors knowingly underpaid their rebate obligations under the Medicaid Prescription Drug Rebate Program,” which requires drug companies to pay quarterly rebates to state Medicaid programs “based, in part, on whether a drug is a ‘generic’ or ‘branded’ product and the difference between what the health care program paid for the drug and prices paid by other purchasers.”
