Eligible Kentuckians Can Now File Claim for Provigil Settlement

Attorney General Andy Beshear is urging Kentuckians who purchased Provigil to file their claims as part of the more than $1 million settlement his office secured with pharmaceutical company Cephalon last year over its anticompetitive conduct to protect profits from its sleep disorder drug. As part of the settlement, Kentuckians who used the drug will receive a portion of roughly $760,000. Kentucky’s Medicaid program will receive nearly $500,000 as part of the settlement. The deadline to file a claim is June 25. According to the settlement, Cephalon delayed generic version of Provigil from entering the market for several years, intentionally defrauding the federal government to secure an additional patent.
