Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. will pay $60 million to settle a False Claims Act case brought by a whistleblower alleging that the retail pharmacy chain knowingly overcharged Medicaid when it charged the healthcare program more than “usual and customary price” for medications that participants in Walgreens “Prescriptions Savings Club” received at a lower price.  Of the settlement, approximately $32 million will be paid to the U.S. and $28 million to the affected states.  Whistleblower Marc D. Baker will receive a share of the total settlement, to be determined at a later date.  USAO SDNY
