Georgia Pharmaceutical Company Settles Case Involving Drug Price Reporting

On July 19, 2019, U.S. Pharmaceutical Corporation (USPC), Decatur, Georgia, entered into a $380,142.05 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that USPC failed to submit timely certified monthly and quarterly Average Manufacturer's Price (AMP) data to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for certain months and quarters in 2012, 2015, 2016, and 2017. The Medicaid Drug Rebate Program requires manufacturers to enter into and have in effect a national rebate agreement with the Secretary of Health and Human Services in order for Medicaid payments to be available for the manufacturer's covered outpatient drugs. Companies with such rebate agreements are required to submit certain drug pricing information to CMS, including quarterly and monthly AMP data. Senior Counsel Mary Riordan represented OIG with the assistance of Program Analyst Mariel Filtz.
