Local lawmakers traveled to Hartford Friday to demand a full refund after a new report shows taxpayers in Connecticut are owed millions in EpiPen overpayments.
The report shows Mylan overcharged the federal Medicaid program at least $1.27 billion.
Lawmakers also want the Department of Justice to reject a $465 million settlement offer from the company.
According to the report, Mylan falsely labeled EpiPens as a generic drug, allowing the company to pay 'lower rebates' and collect huge profits at the expense of taxpayers.
