Two charities to pay $6 mln to resolve U.S. pharma kickback probe

BOSTON, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Two charities will pay $6 million to resolve claims that they operated as pass-throughs for seven pharmaceutical companies to pay kickbacks to Medicare patients using their high-priced medications, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday.

The settlements with the patient assistance charities Good Days and Patient Access Network Foundation were the first to be reached with foundations linked to an industry-wide probe that has resulted in $840 million in settlements with drugmakers.
