In June 2005 and February 2006, members of Prescription Access Litigation’s coalition filed class action lawsuits against First Databank, Inc. and McKesson Corp, alleging that the companies conspired to raise drug prices by inflating the “Average Wholesale Price” (AWP) of hundreds of drugs. AWP is used to set the retail price of prescription drugs. The case seeks to get reimbursement for consumers and health plans, and to end this type of scheme.

You may be eligible to join this lawsuit if you:

  • Had no insurance at any time between 2001 and 2004, and
  • Paid for brand-name prescription drugs (not generics) yourself

OR if you paid for brand-name prescription drugs yourself that were not covered by insurance.
