Walgreen settles

Oklahoma will receive almost $15,000 for its participation in a multi-state settlement with Walgreen Co., Attorney Gen. Drew Edmondson said on Thursday.

Walgreen agreed to pay $7.6 million to settle allegations that the company submitted false claims to federal and state health care programs. Oklahoma will receive $14,820. The states alleged that, between June 1986 and September 1996, Walgreen billed federal and state health care programs for quantities of medication that exceeded the amounts actually given to customers.

The terms of the agreement include a corporate integrity agreement in which Walgreen agreed to modify its pharmacy billing practices to ensure compliance with Medicare and Medicaid rules and regulations, as well as other applicable laws. The agreement will be administered by the federal Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General.

"We alleged that, for about 10 years, Walgreen gave customers partial prescriptions but billed health care programs for full prescriptions," Edmondson said. "I am pleased with the financial recovery but more important is the integrity agreement that should keep this problem from recurring."

Oklahoma's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit was joined in the settlement by Medicaid programs from 24 other states and Puerto Rico. Walgreen is a Deerfield, Ill.-based retail pharmacy chain operating more than 2,750 stores in 37 states and Puerto Rico.

Setting an example

In the matter of efficient letterheads, one of the best press release cover sheets in use locally comes from the Oklahoma City Chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals. In a concise list running down the right side of the page, the organization details the address, phone and fax numbers for all seven of its top officers. Noticeably absent are e-mail addresses, but the organization does provide its own Web address, along with its phone number.

Pathmakers honored

Four living persons and four from the past have been named Pathmakers of Oklahoma County by the Oklahoma City/County Historical Society. They will be honored at an annual awards luncheon of the Society at noon Tuesday at Applewoods Restaurant.

The eight will be recognized permanently, along with previous Pathmakers, on a plaque to be installed in the society's display area in the new Oklahoma Historical Society Museum on which construction will begin next year.

Living people to receive the Pathmaker recognition are John Keating, Pat Potts, Dr. G. A. Finley and Garman O. Kimmell. Pathmakers from the past are the late James G. Harlow Jr., former Gov. William J. Holloway, L.A. Macklanburg and R. Whit Lee. The society's Distinguished Service Award for historical preservation will be presented to Warren Edwards.

The luncheon is open to the public with reservations priced at $20 per person. Inquiries may be made to Pendleton Woods, 524-9676.

Keating is founder and chief executive officer of the Topographic Co., which provides surveying and mapping services to the petroleum industry. He also is active in civic activities such as higher education and the Salvation Army.

Potts is founder and president of the Center for Non-Profit Management. She is former president of the Oklahoma City Board of Education and Oklahoma City Beautiful. …
