J&J sues com­pa­ny over al­leged abuse of its cost as­sis­tance pro­gram

John­son & John­son Health Care Sys­tems is su­ing a New Jer­sey mid­dle­man to stop it from in­creas­ing drug costs for pa­tients.

Ac­cord­ing to the law­suit, the ac­tion is in­tend­ed to stop SaveOn­SP from con­duct­ing a scheme to pil­fer tens of mil­lions of dol­lars from the fi­nan­cial sup­port pro­gram that J&J Health­care Ser­vices pro­vides for pa­tients.

SaveOn­SP, based in New York state, runs a co-pay ad­just­ment strat­e­gy that in­tends to build on ex­ist­ing in­sur­er-dri­ven co-pay ad­just­ment pro­grams. The pro­gram is run in part­ner­ship with PBM Ex­press Scripts and op­er­at­ed in con­junc­tion with spe­cial­ty phar­ma­cy Ac­cre­do.
