A.G. Schneiderman Announces $40m Settlement Resolving Fraud Allegations Against Health Care Giant Carefusion

NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced that New York has joined with 49 other states, the District of Columbia and the federal government in a global settlement with CareFusion, a California manufacturer of medical and surgical supplies and medical devices, resolving civil allegations of unlawful marketing practices and the payment of kickbacks aimed at promoting sales of CareFusion's surgical preparation solution, Chloraprep. San Diego-based CareFusion, a corporation spun off from Cardinal Health in 2009, allegedly promoted and marketed the solution for uses that were not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and for uses that were not medically appropriate. Under the terms of agreement, unsealed today in U.S. District Court in Kansas, CareFusion will pay $40.1 million to the states and the federal government. New York's share is $2,067,976.04, plus accrued interest.
