Merck Settles With Govt Over Rebates
I love how they spin this.
The crux of the story is the company negotiated secret contracts with hospitals giving deep discounts which of course were not passed onto Medicaid. Also, they paid off doctors to prescribe their products versus other products.
And they got caught. So they get a slap on the hand and have to pay approx 700 Million dollars in fines. Big Deal!
