The New York Attorney General announced a $22.4 million with the pharmacy Trinity Homecare LLC, primarily owned by Walgreen Co., that began with a whistleblower claim of improper conduct and false Medicaid billings by the company and led to an expanded investigation by the AG's office . The settlement related to Synagis, an expensive injectable drug for certain at-risk premature infants. The settlement resolved claims of improper prescriptions and billings for patients in New York City, Dutchess, Orange, Rockland, Sullivan, Westchester and Ulster counties, and on Long Island, and allegations that Trinity lacked basic documentation for Medicaid claims it submitted or proof it delivered Synagis.
