Swine flu vaccine supplier BAXTER has to pay back millions

US pharmaceutical giant Baxter accused of overcharging Medicaid programmes
A company producing swine flu vaccine for Britain (and New Zealand) has paid millions of pounds in out-of-court settlements after being accused of fraudulently overcharging for medicines.

Baxter, the US pharmaceutical giant, reached at least seven huge settlements over the past 12 months, some of them for millions of dollars. The company had been accused of fraud amid allegations that it had overpriced medicines by as much as 1,300%.
