According to the complaint, during the class period Defendants misled investors about (1) Vanda's engagement in a fraudulent scheme in which it promoted the off-label use of 2 drugs (Fanapt and Hetlioz), (2) Vanda's fraudulent receipt of drug reimbursements from the government by abusing Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare programs, and (3) Vanda's use of misleading promotional materials for the drugs.
On February 11, 2019, Aurelius Value published a link to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' and several States' unsealed complaint, which charges Vanda violated and continues to violate Federal and State false claims acts and applicable regulatory and ethical guidance by submitting fraudulent bills to the government as a result of off-label marketing and other prohibited marketing strategies.
“We’re focused on matters raised in the Federal and States complaint that, if true, could have misled investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.

Under the new program, whistleblowers who provide original information may receive rewards totaling up to 30 percent of any successful recovery made by the SEC.
