Attorney General Sues Pharmacy Benefit Manager OptumRx
The suit charges OptumRx allegedly overcharged Ohio $16 million
Ohio State Attorney General Dave Yost gave OptumRx 30 days to settle a dispute over billing. Yost says those 30 days have gone by and their time is up; now he is taking them to court to get State taxpayer dollars back.
This all stemmed from an investigation into what Ohio was being charged for one of its Medicaid Managed Care accounts.
Allegedly OptumRx told the State was told it was going to save a bunch of money with a discount on drug prices, but when it came time to bill the State was charged a different, higher, amount.
