Latest on CMS's Challenge to WV Oxycontin Settlement

Larry Messina provides the latest on CMS's challenge to the $10M Oxycontin settlement by the West Virginia Attorney General's office against Purdue Pharma. Last month the West Virginia Bureau of Medical Services received from CMS a $4.1M notice of disallowance stating that the state failed to share a portion of the settlement with federal Medicare.
