Vt. AG: Settlement With 25 Companies Over Drugs

The Vermont attorney general's office says 25 manufacturers of drugs and medical devices have agreed to comply with a state law that bans most gifts such as meals to health care providers.

The office said the companies self-reported violations. The law requires manufacturers of prescribed products, including pharmaceuticals and medical devices to disclose expenditures deemed appropriate by the Legislature.

Twenty-four of the manufacturers, having failed to file disclosures entirely, paid a total of over $25,000 to the state in fees.

One manufacturer paid $36,000 in civil penalties to settle a total of six gift-ban violations; each one consisted of providing a meal to a health care provider.
