Texas-based Healthpoint, Ltd. allegedly caused false Medicaid claims to be submitted for an unapproved medication known as Xenaderm.  Meanwhile, California-based Victory Pharma is accused of paying unlawful inducements to physicians to prescribe its drugs.

Under the settlement, Healthpiont and its general partner DFB Pharmaceuticals has paid a total of $48 million to the federal government and 15 participating states, including New Jersey.  Healthpoint’s settlement payout to New Jersey Medicaid of $607,704 was received last week.
