A portion of the illegal conduct related to the manipulation of “prior authorizations” for the osteoporosis medications Actonel® and Atelvia®. Insurance companies who paid for Actonel® and/or Atelvia®, or individuals who paid co-payments for these drugs, based on manipulated prior authorizations between June 2010 and February 2012, may be eligible for restitution.  Potentially affected insurance companies and individuals have until March 31, 2016 to submit the restitution claim form.
