Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. agreed to pay Humana Inc. $360 million to settle allegations that Walgreens’ retail pharmacies overcharged for prescription drugs. Walgreens said in a Jan. 4 U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it had paid $150 million of the settlement amount last month. In May 2023, Walgreens filed a lawsuit asking a judge to overturn a $642 million arbitration judgement awarded to Humana two months earlier. Walgreens has faced other lawsuits in recent years alleging the company overcharged for medications. For instance, Walgreens in 2019 paid the federal government and states a $269.2 million settlement related to allegations that it improperly billed Medicare, Medicaid and other health care programs for insulin pens. And in 2022, three Blue Cross and Blue Shield affiliates sued Walgreens over generic medication pricing.
