On October 5, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") issued a letter stating that Mylan had for years overcharged the U.S. Medicaid health program to buy its EpiPen shot, despite being told that the Company needed to provide bigger discounts under the law. The CMS letter stated that from 2011 to 2015, the U.S. Medicaid health program spent approximately $797 million on EpiPens, including rebates of roughly 13%, rather than the discount of 23.1% that the U.S. should have received. The letter stated that the government has previously "expressly told Mylan that the [EpiPen] product is incorrectly classified."
On this news, Mylan's share price has fallen as much as $1.18, or 3.1%, to $36.85 during intraday trading on October 6, 2016.
