Angie Craig’s company overcharged veterans for medical devices
August 29, 2016
Angie Craig took to the airwaves today to highlight her company’s record on veterans, but she omitted a fairly important detail. In 2012, Craig’s company, St. Jude Medical, was forced to pay $3.65 million as part of a settlement with the Department of Justice for overcharging our nation’s veterans for their medical devices.
The settlement resolved a Justice Department case under the False Claims Act into Craig’s company inflating the cost of replacement pacemakers and defibrillators purchased by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
