Healthcare Providers Letter

August 2020

 

Dear US Healthcare Providers,

 

As you may be aware, Indivior recently entered into a civil, criminal, and administrative settlement with the United States and individual states in connection with Indivior’s sales and promotion of Suboxone Film. This letter provides you with additional information about the global settlement, explains Indivior’s commitments going forward, and provides you with access to information about those commitments.

 

In general terms, the Government alleges that Indivior engaged in certain unlawful and improper conduct relating to the promotion of Suboxone Film. To address criminal liability, a subsidiary of Indivior agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges of making materially false statements relating to health care matters and agreed to pay almost $300 million in criminal fines and forfeiture. In addition, to resolve liability under the Federal False Claims Act, Indivior agreed to enter into a civil settlement agreement and pay $300 million. Further, Indivior has agreed to a stipulated injunction with the Federal Trade Commission. More information about this settlement may be found at these online resources: https://www.justice.gov/civil/consumer-protection-branchhttps://www.justice.gov/usao-wdva, and http://indivior.com/.

 

As part of the global settlement, Indivior also entered into a five-year corporate integrity agreement with the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

 

The corporate integrity agreement is available at http://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/cia/index.html. Under this agreement, Indivior agreed to undertake certain obligations designed to promote compliance with Federal health care program and FDA requirements. We also agreed to notify healthcare providers about the settlement and inform them that they can report any questionable practices by Indivior’s representatives to Indivior’s Compliance organization or the FDA using the information set out below.

 

Please call Indivior at 1-877-886-3828 or visit us at  http://indivior.com/ if you have questions about the settlement referenced above.

 

Please call Indivior at 1-855-881-7196 or visit us at www.indivior.ethicspoint.com to report any instances in which you believe that an Indivior representative inappropriately promoted a product or engaged in other questionable conduct.
