Washington State Will Receive a $518 Million Opioid Settlement

Three opioid distributors Tuesday announced a $518 million settlement with Washington state. AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health and McKesson settled following a lawsuit regarding the companies’ alleged role in fueling Washington’s opioid epidemic. Washington agreed to dismiss the current lawsuit upon the settlement becoming effective.

McKesson’s statement reads:

While the companies strongly dispute the allegations made in the plaintiffs’ complaints and during trial, they believe that resolving all of the litigation filed by the State of Washington and its political subdivisions will further the companies’ goal of achieving broad resolution of governmental opioid claims while delivering meaningful relief to communities across the United States that have been impacted by the opioid epidemic.
