Opioid Settlement & Litigation
Indiana has been hit hard by the opioid epidemic. The rates of opioid prescribing in Indiana reached a peak in 2012 when, on average, there were 112 opioid prescriptions for every 100 residents in the state. From 2012 through 2016, there were 58 Indiana counties with opioid prescribing rates greater than 100 prescriptions per 100 residents.
Indiana recently announced that it anticipates being a part of the $26 billion national settlement with Johnson & Johnson, AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health and McKesson. Indiana’s share of the settlement could be up to $507 million if all cities, towns, and counties participate.
