Drug pricing settlement

General Electric Co.’s health-care unit will pay more than $30 million to settle claims that a company it bought in 2004 provided false information to Medicare to pad billings for a drug used to diagnose heart disease. The fraud settlement involves the drug Myoview sold by Amersham Health Inc. and resolves claims filed under the False Claims Act. Under drug pricing laws, pharmaceutical providers are required to report best price and average sales price calculations for Medicare reimbursement.
