MBG Recovers More Than $700 million Against Prescription Drug Manufacturers Who Reported False Prices to State Medicaid Agencies

For the past 10 years, Miner, Barnhill & Galland has represented numerous states that have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in litigation against prescription drug manufacturers for reporting false prices. This litigation — known as “Average Wholesale Price” litigation — has recovered windfall profits that the drug manufacturers reaped by causing the publication of inflated prices for their drugs. These inflated drug prices were fed into state Medicaid reimbursement systems and caused states to pay higher reimbursements for drugs than the states would have paid if the prices had been true and accurate.

Several MBG attorneys have served as Special Assistant Attorneys General for the states, and have served as lead counsel during extensive trials following years of pretrial discovery. MBG has represented Illinois, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Idaho, Hawaii, Alaska and South Carolina in AWP litigation. The total amount recovered to date by MBG for these states exceeds $700 million.
