A Recap of the Johnson & Johnson Opioid Trial with State Impact's Jackie Fortier

Jul 23, 2019

Through the seven week Oklahoma opioid trial against pharmaceutical company, Johnson & Johnson, there was only one reporter on hand for every single day of the trial, and that was State Impact Oklahoma's Jackie Fortier. She joins us on this edition of StudioTulsa Medical Monday, to talk about the trial, and the most effective arguments made by the Attorney General's office and the company's defense team. We'll also hear how the state is responding to requests from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, who are demanding reimbursement from the proceeds of a previous settlement against Purdue Pharmaceuticals. That $270 million settlement alleged Medicare and Medicaid fraud and the federal government is seeking its share.
