U.S. Accuses J&J Of Kickback Scheme With Omnicare.
Source: nyt/reuters

The Justice Department accused giant pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson <JNJ.N> of paying tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks to Omnicare Inc <OCR.N> to buy and recommend J&J drugs.

The alleged kickbacks, dating from 1999 through 2004, included providing pharmacy services company Omnicare with increased rebates in exchange for more prescriptions of J&J drugs as well as payments for data that was never furnished, the Justice Department said.

J&J also made other payments, called "grants" and "educational funding," that were meant to persuade Omnicare to recommend the company's medicines, the government said.

5. Obama"s administration goes after High Level Medicare Fraud
is the only reason we are seeing more and more stories like this.

Under the last administration it was "If it is Good for Business, it is Good for US"
