Ellyn Sternfield will moderate the panel, "State Pricing Enforcement Update: The State Enforcers Speak," at the 10th Annual In-House Counsel Forum on Government Regulation of Prescription Drug Pricing presented by the American Conference Institute in New York City.

State Attorneys General Offices have always been active in the pricing arena through their Medicaid Fraud Control Units. They have taken an active role in the uptick of the state AWP cases as well as related marketing and promotion matters that have been brought under state Medicaid fraud claims. This panel of state enforcers will examine current and ongoing pricing investigations and enforcement actions in their states. Points of discussion will include:

  • Thee nexus between state consumer protection and false claims act statutes relative to pricing actions
