Jazz Pharmaceuticals will pay $57 million to settle allegations that the company violated the False Claims Act by providing funds to a purportedly independent patient assistance program in a form that created an improper kickback.  The funds provided by Jazz were used to cover the copayments for patients to purchase Jazz’s drugs Xyrem, a narcolepsy medication, and Prialt, an injectable pain medication.  Jazz referred Medicare patients to the fund, and denied them access to Jazz’s free drug program, enabling Jazz to bill Medicare for their purchases.
