Sanofi to pay $11.9 mln to resolve U.S. drug kickback probe

BOSTON, Feb 28 (Reuters) - Sanofi SA has agreed to pay nearly $11.9 million to resolve allegations that it used a charity that helps Medicare patients cover out-of-pocket drug costs as a way to pay kickbacks aimed at encouraging the use of a high-priced multiple sclerosis drug.

The U.S. Justice Department on Friday said Sanofi was the latest company to settle claims stemming from an industry-wide probe of drugmakers' financial support of patient assistance charities.

Sanofi did not admit wrongdoing as part of the settlement. (Reporting by Nate Raymond in Boston; Editing by Sandra Maler)
