Pharmacy Giant Settles Another Whistleblower Suit

Posted on Sep 03, 2012

Omnicare, the giant pharmacy company, has settled another whistleblower lawsuit, this one alleging kickbacks in its 2004 acquisition of Total Pharmacy Services. The whistleblower, Maureen Niehls, claimed in a 2007 lawsuit that the acquisition price included payment to one of Total Pharmacy's owners for nursing home contracts.  Omnicare settled a whistleblower case in May for $50 million involving allegations that it billed for medications never actually administered. In 2010, it settled another whistleblower suit - that one claiming that it overbilled Medicaid -- for $21 million.
