Pfizer settles with Oregon over misleading customers

SALEM, Oregon — A large prescription drug manufacturer will pay Oregon nearly $1 million because it misled customers with its marketing.

Pfizer was accused of distributing misleading marketing materials and coupons to Oregonians.

The coupons claimed consumers would pay no more than a certain amount to help afford brand-name drug co-pays or deductibles, but it was found that many people paid a lot more while using the coupons.

The settlement is for $975,000 for which $620,000 will go to support Project Access NOW and Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, which help both uninsured and under-insured Oregonians afford health care.

The rest of the settlement will reimburse consumers who used the misleading coupons and help the Department of Justice fund future investigations.
