It states that “the agreement was reached at the joint request to settle its disputes and avoid the delay, cost, inconvenience and uncertainty of long litigation… This is a strange agreement, given that a document just received by TDMR this week shows that in June 2010, Xerox guaranteed the state that it would undoubtedly reimburse Texas Medicaid $2,500 for any prior authorization that did not meet “performance standards.” A spokeswoman for Unilever confirmed the transaction, which allows it to avoid distracted litigation and “make sure our transaction can move forward.” The complaint was filed in Delaware Chancery Court, and the transaction requires court approval, shareholders` attorneys said. The plaintiffs include pension funds in Oklahoma and Florida and KBC Asset Management NV, as the court records show. It is also interesting to note that the agreement states that the AG office began the investigation into Xerox/Conduent in June 2012. A copy of the publication-related transaction agreement (available below) shows that the state has not received an admission of wrongdoing or even liability from Xerox. Given that the state claimed that Xerox had authorized some 500,000 prior authorizations from 2004 to 2012, without proper verification, this agreement signed by Xerox would represent a fine of $1.25 billion, which the company had already approved. This morning, Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that the State of Texas had settled its fraud complaint against Xerox/Conduent, its former Medicaid administrator from 2004 to 2012, for $2 billion for $235 million. Comparison of the inadequacy of the Xerox/Conduent prior orthodontic authorization procedure was considered a collection record for Medicaid fraud in Texas. The version below can be read. The agreement also states that “the State of Texas (including but not limited to HHSC and the Texas Attorney General`s Office) has concluded that the settlement defined in this agreement is in the public interest and is fair, appropriate and appropriate in all circumstances.” According to shareholder lawyers, the transaction is intended to allay concerns that the merger agreement could have deterred other potential acquirers from making better takeover bids. The agreement of whom tam relators concerning the case contains nothing either. There are no penalties for the company in the comparison. Xerox/Conduent pays the government only US$212 million “for monetary losses allegedly due to alleged breaches in compliance with the obligations of Conduent Healthcare or TMHP under the 2003 and 2010 contracts…” plus an additional $23.5 million for legal fees.
