Blue Cross Blue Shield Sues Pfizer

Blue Cross Blue Shield has filed a lawsuit against Pfizer over its marketing of three drugs. The allegations in the lawsuit state that the company pushed off-label uses of the drugs and used “kick-backs” to prescribe them. The allegations made in Complaints resemble those in the $2.3 billion settlement between Pfizer and the United States Department of Justice.  According to the lawsuit, Pfizer not only handed out those misleading materials for off-label uses, but sent doctors on Caribbean junkets and paid them $2,000 in honoraria in return for them listening to lectures about Bextra.
