Paxton Recovers $26 Million for the State of Texas, Medicaid Program

AUSTIN, TX  –  Attorney General Ken Paxton resolved an enforcement action against pharmaceutical manufacturer Apotex for reporting inflated drug prices to the Texas Medicaid program.  Under the agreement, Apotex will pay Texas $26 million to resolve claims against it.

This settlement is the latest recovery in price reporting cases the Attorney General has brought under the Texas Medicaid Fraud Prevention Act since 1999, resulting in a cumulative recovery for Texas taxpayers of over $2.3 billion.

“Thanks to our Civil Medicaid Fraud Division’s commitment to Texas taxpayers, identifying and preventing Medicaid fraud continues to be a top priority in my office,” Attorney General Paxton said.  “We will not allow pharmaceutical companies to take advantage of vulnerable Texans, and we will continue to be vigilant in cracking down on any abuse of this important program.”

    1. Hello Roving Cowboy, great to see you!
      Yes they are doing a really good job, and I just hope they can keep it up, with the way the LIBTards have turned into the world’s biggest liars and total #AntiAmerican.
      You know it is a real odd thing how they just turned their backs on Families and Children when President Trump was in office, they just flat out took all the lobby PAYOLA from AT&T, Verizon and whoever to let NET NEUTRALITY die a very sad death. Education had never been cheaper and easier for Children and Parents. All I got to say is #NuttyNancy and the whole bunch proved they are just plain ol’ SEWER RAT DUNG!!!!
