Attorney General Steve Six has sued 17 drug companies for overcharging Kansas medicaid.

In his lawsuit, Six says the companies allegedly misrepresented drug price information in order to increase reimbursements made by Kansas medicaid, the health care program for the poor in the state.

In one instance, Six pointed to a company charging $342 dollars for a drug, when the actual price was $6.98. That's 4,802% over the true price.
