false, incomplete and misleading information that was material to the claims. The information
was material because insurers would have wanted to know that the Defendant Manufacturers
were not complying with state insurance, prescription drug switching, and consumer fraud laws.
Insurers were unaware of the falsity of the records, statements and claims made or
caused to be made by the Defendant Manufacturers involving the Defendant Manufacturers'
illegal prescription drug provision at the time the insurers reimbursed the co-conspirator
Each claim for reimbursement from an insurer that Defendant Manufacturers
submit, or caused to be submitted for providing "preferred" prescription drugs
represents a false claim. Each claim for reimbursement for "preferred" drug prescriptions also
represents an unlawful claim and/or a false or fraudulent claim for payment.

possession of the Defendant Manufacturers and Omnicare.
Plaintiffs demand trial by jury on all claims.
