Walgreens To Pay Millions For Over Billing The Government

Drug store chain Walgreen's is agreeing to pay nearly 270-million-dollars to settle lawsuits claiming they over billed federal health care programs for a decade.  

The Department of Justice announced the settlement. 

One of the lawsuits claimed Walgreens billed Medicare, Medicaid and other programs for hundreds of thousands of insulin pens given to patients it knew didn't need them.

It will also settle a lawsuit that claims it overcharged Medicaid by not disclosing and charging the discount drug prices it offered the public through its prescription savings club program.

Walgreens said in a statement it was not admitting to any wrongdoing but it accepts responsibility.
