Medco kickback offer to UnitedHealth investigated

The Wall Street Journal reported on December 6, 2004 that the Justice Department is investigating allegations that Medco Health Solutions made an offer of more than $200 million in kickbacks to UnitedHealth Group.

Medco, a pharmacy benefits manager, supposedly made the offer to win business from the managed care organization. The information comes from documents filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia in connection with a fraud lawsuit against Medco. The filing does not name UnitedHealth, but refers to a large managed health care organization and says that the government wants to interview one former and one current UnitedHealth employee.
