Michigan to Receive Millions in Health Care Lawsuit

Michigan is to receive money in one of the biggest health care fraud lawsuits in U.S. history. 

Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay more than $2.2 billion to the federal government and 45 states for false marketing of drugs for the elderly and children. The lawsuit also includes improper promotion of a heart failure medication. In addition, the company is being accused of offering kickbacks to physicians and pharmacies if they prescribed these drugs. Michigan is set to receive about $42 million, which will mostly go towards the state's Medicaid program.
