Last week, US pharmaceuticals giant Pfizer agreed to pay $2.3bn to resolve criminal and civil liability relating to the off-label promotion of several of its drugs in what the Department of Justice called the largest fraud settlement in its history.

Part of the record payout, approximately $333m, will be split between State Medicare and Medicaid programmes nationwide. Florida, Texas and California lead the field receiving $58m, $15m and $34m, respectively.
