DoJ Reveals Their Share of Recovered Money in Qui Tam Settlements

Out of the total $1.34 billion recovered by the US government in qui tam settlements, the Department of Justice recovered $694.5 million. The money results from 3 major settlements with a device manufacturer and two pharmaceutical companies: Merck, Cephalon and Kyphon. The allegations ranged from illegal incentives to persuade healthcare providers to prescribe its products to defrauding Medicaid and Medicare.

Although all three companies paid in settlements, none admitted guilt of any allegations.
