Settlement checks headed to Oklahoma consumers

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- More than 270 Oklahomans who took the widely prescribed cancer medication Taxol will soon begin receiving restitution checks.

Bristol-Myers Squibb reached an agreement with attorney generals in 49 states and the District of Columbia last year to pay $55-million for damages, penalties and individual consumer redress.

The states had complained that the manufacturer blocked less expensive generic drugs from going on the market.

A total of $157,434 will be sent to 271 Oklahoma consumers who overpaid for Taxol.

Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson says the first reimbursement checks for Oklahomans were sent out yesterday.

The settlement also includes about $240,000 in restitution for state agencies.
