Harris County sues insulin manufacturers, alleging price-grouping scheme

The Cicala Law Firm has been chosen to serve as Special Counsel to Harris County, TX in a new matter filed 11/21/19 addressing the spiraling costs of insulin and other life-saving diabetic treatments. The case alleges that this price-fixing conspiracy among a handful of dominant market actors has rendered insulin the latest poster child for unlawful price gouging in the prescription drug market. Treatments that cost $20 decades ago are today sold for between $300-700 or more as a result of the alleged scheme- All to create profits for 3 Manufacturers (who control 99% of the insulin market) and 3 PBMs (who control 89% of the PBM market).

We are honored to do this good work in an effort to return ill-gotten gains to the Harris County Treasury.

Democracy is hard enough without fraud!
