The attorney general's office announced that Arkansas
will receive about $3 million for its Medicaid
programs as part of a $784 million settlement of a national class action lawsuit with Pfizer and its subsidiary Wyeth
Arkansas joined 34 other states during the administration of Dustin McDaniel in a lawsuit over underpayments of rebates owed for the sale to Medicaid of Protonix Oral and Protonix IV between 2001 and 2006.
Rebates were supposed to be made for Medicaid payments against the best price reported in all drug sales. The lawsuit said sales weren't properly reported.
