Kentucky has joined other states and the federal government in reaching a multi-million dollar settlement with a corporation accused of conducting illegal kickback schemes.
Attorney General Jack Conway announced today that Kentucky is among several other states to receive a portion of a $12 million settlement with Victory Pharma, Incorporated to compensate Medicaid, Medicare and various federal healthcare programs for harm suffered as a result of its conduct.
Attorney General Conway stated the settlement resolves allegations that San Diego, California based V-P-I paid unlawful kickbacks to health care professionals to prescribe four of its drugs to their patients.
Attorney General Conway added the Kentucky Medicaid program will receive a total of $426,843 from the settlement.
Since January 2008, The Attorney General’s Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control recovered over $292 million dollars for the state and federal Medicaid programs.
