LANSING (AP) – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says the state is in line to get $23.8 million as part of a $3 billion settlement of an improper drug marketing case against GlaxoSmithKline LLC.
Michigan was among states that sued the company.
Schuette says GlaxoSmithKline underpaid the rebates it owed for drugs paid through the state’s Medicaid program.
The Justice Department says the $3 billion combined criminal-civil fine will be the largest penalty ever paid by a drug company.
