CORAL GABLES, Fla., June 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSP Recovery, Inc. (“MSP Recovery” or “MSPR”), a Medicare, Medicaid, commercial, and secondary payer reimbursement recovery and technology leader, today provided a business update.

  • MSP has commenced sending individual claim demands totaling more than $5.6 billion in billed amounts for payments due from some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world.
  • The total amounts billed against identified pharmaceutical companies related to more than twenty-five different types of recoveries.

MSPR Identifies Additional Owned Claims Against Big Pharma

MSPR today announced that it has identified more than $5.6 billion in billed amounts and more than $2.8 billion in paid amounts for unique potentially recoverable cases on behalf of Medicare Advantage Organizations and other payers against large pharmaceutical companies (“Big Pharma”) for various product liability, consumer protection, and antitrust claims.

The announcement follows MSPR’s announcement two weeks ago that it has grown its owned claims to $368 billion, and identified more than $1.5 billion in billed amounts for unique potentially recoverable cases on behalf of Medicare Advantage Organizations against property and casualty insurance carriers.

To pursue and maximize these identified claims against Big Pharma companies, MSPR is sending individual claim demand packages seeking that these damages for MSPR’s owned claims be paid within thirty (30) days. MSPR is pursuing these recoveries against some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, including but not limited to:

Pursued Claims: Paid and Bill Amount

In addition to these particularized efforts to recover and any pending litigation matters, several Private Lien Resolution Programs (“PLRPs”) have been established across the country by settlement committees in mass tort litigation matters against Big Pharma companies.

PLRPs are established to resolve health care liens asserted by private health insurance providers in mass tort settlements. MSPR is actively working with various lien resolution administrators to recover on those owned claims for which manufacturers have already settled other lawsuits and established PLRPs.

MSPR has already entered into PLRP agreements and has been collecting on those claims. These PLRPs include some of the same Big Pharma companies that have already settled with MSPR on claims brought by individuals as opposed to health plans. MSPR is now pursuing these same types of claims on its owned claims stemming from the same types of agreements already reached. These PLRPs stem from cases that have already been settled by Big Pharma and agreed to pay claimants.

Those PLRPs include:

  • Roundup/Monsanto Product Liability Litigation
  • TRT Androderm - Testosterone Replacement Therapy Products Liability Litigation
  • TRT Androgel - Testosterone Replacement Therapy Products Liability Litigation
  • Invokana Products Liability Litigation
  • Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) Products Liability Litigation
  • Depakote Product Liability Product Liability Litigation
  • Benicar Product Liability
  • Purdue Bankruptcy PLRP
  • Mallinckrodt Bankruptcy PLRP

“In the last several weeks, we diversified our strategy and have begun adding massive individual billing to our recovery efforts. As a result, we have seen a significant increase in the volume of checks received. We believe that with the more than $7.1 billion in billed amounts (including $1.5 billion previously announced on June 13, 2022) we are in the process of sending out, we will continue seeing an increase in the volume of recoveries. We also continue to grow and identify additional recovery opportunities for our existing clients. We have also seen a significant increase in entities that have engaged MSPR at many levels. We have surpassed our expectation in new business growth well beyond our five (5) year forecast and have now established new protocols to match the new business with revenue,” said MSP Recovery Founder and CEO, John H. Ruiz. “Big Pharma is a multi-billion-dollar industry against which MSPR is pursuing significant recoveries through data-driven solutions.”
