McKesson Settlement for $190 Million Under False Claims Act

McKesson Settlement for $190 Million Under False Claims Act

McKesson corporation, a San Francisco-based company and one of the largest pharmaceuticals companies in the world, will pay $190  million as settlement in a whistleblower case under the False Claims Act. Whistleblower David Morgan is a Pennsylvania pharmacist and healthcare auditor who conducted his own investigation to uncover the alleged fraud perpetrated by McKesson.

According to Morgan, McKesson allegedly committed fraud against government healthcare programs – both federal and state – by incorrectly inflating the reported prices of brand-name and self-administered drugs. Among the federal and state healthcare programs allegedly defrauded were Medicare and Medicaid. Morgan and the government claim that the fraud resulted in the government losing millions of dollars by overpaying for these drugs.

Whistleblowers are entitled to 25% of rewards in cases such as these. For more information on whistleblower practices and rewards in California and for a free and confidential consultation with a Whistleblower Attorney in California, contact us.
