OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A federal prosecutor says CVS Pharmacy Inc. has agreed to pay $11 million to settle allegations that the company’s Oklahoma pharmacies violated record-keeping requirements of the Controlled Substances Act.
U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats in Oklahoma City announced the settlement deal on Wednesday.
Woonsocket, R.I.-based CVS acknowledged that its stores must comply with the record-keeping requirements. But the company did not admit liability.
The allegations against CVS included that some of its stores created false Drug Enforcement Administration registration numbers that were sometimes provided to state prescription drug monitoring programs.
CVS operates 46 pharmacy retail stores in Oklahoma.
Thousands gathered at the memorial to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who survived.
You may remember the story we did earlier this week about the Pearl Harbor survivor who was headed here from the mainland for the ceremony, he was bumped from the flight and didn't know if he would get here in time.
