Bausch + Lomb Announces Settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice to Resolve and Conclude ISTA Pharmaceuticals Inc

Bausch + Lomb announced has reached agreement with the U.S. government to resolve and conclude civil and criminal allegations against ISTA Pharmaceuticals Inc. The settlement involves conduct by ISTA that occurred between January 2006 and March 2011, well before Bausch + Lomb's acquisition. Bausch + Lomb was aware of the government investigation prior to its acquisition, and has fully cooperated with the government to resolve this matter. As part of the settlement, ISTA has agreed to pay approximately $34 million in civil and criminal fines including interest and attorney's fees, and will be prohibited from participating in federal healthcare programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. However, Bepreve(R), Bromday(R), Istalol(R), Prolensa(R) and Vitrase(R) have been transferred to Bausch & Lomb Incorporated, and therefore are not subject to any exclusion resulting from this settlement and continue to be eligible for reimbursement under those programs.
