Pharmacy benefits management giant Express Scripts has agreed to pay $9.5 million to 28 states—including Pennsylvania—to settle lawsuits alleging deceptive business practices.

The lawsuits claimed the company convinced doctors to change patients’ cholesterol drug prescriptions to brands that offered Express Scripts a rebate under the false premise that the savings would be passed along to patients.

The settlement bars Express Scripts from asking that physicians switch patients to higher-priced drugs, asking for a switch when a generic equivalent is available or if the patent on the original drug is to expire within six months, or asking for a change after a patient has been switched to a new drug in the past two years.

Express Scripts said it would need to make “only minor adjustments” to its business practices to come into compliance.
