Attorney General Tim Fox announced today that Montana has joined with other states, territories, and the federal government and reached agreement with Kmart Corporation (“Kmart”) to settle allegations that Kmart submitted false claims and false statements through its Kmart Pharmacy Centers to the federal government, state governments, and territories for payments relating to partial fills of prescriptions.

On October 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Montana Department of Justice, local law enforcement agencies, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Montanans are invited to bring their unwanted medications for free, anonymous disposal at one of over 20 participating sites across the state.
