#EpiPen maker gets a slap on the wrist from the Feds

EpiPen maker Mylan has finalized a $465-million government agreement settling allegations it overbilled Medicaid for its emergency allergy injectors for a decade — charges brought after rival Sanofi filed a whistleblower lawsuit and tipped off the government.

It’s the second settlement with the Department of Justice that Mylan has made since 2009 to end allegations it overcharged the government for its medicines.

The settlement is far smaller than the amount Medicaid was overcharged.
