File an Exjade Lawsuit
Novartis AG recently agreed to pay $390 million to settle a lawsuit in which the U.S. government claimed the Swiss company paid kickbacks to pharmacies to boost sales of some of its prescription drugs, including Exjade.
The U.S. sued Novartis over Exjade, claiming the company had referred patients to specialty pharmacies and paid kickbacks in the form of rebates to get those pharmacies to recommend the drug to patients and to increase sales.
“We are not admitting liability, we are also not denying it,” Novartis Chief Executive Officer Joe Jimenez told Bloomberg. “We are just settling it and putting it behind us.”
The U.S. Department of Justice was seeking $3.3 billion in fines and damages.
The government reportedly said specialty pharmacies also submitted thousands of fraud-tainted reimbursement claims to Medicare and Medicaid for the two drugs.
The settlement allows Novartis to avoid a trial that was set for Nov. 2 in Manhattan federal court.
