Tracking Opioid Settlement Payouts

by Martin Makaryan

National health news outlet KFF Health News has published a dataset showing how much state and local governments are receiving in settlements from companies that made, sold, or distributed prescription painkillers and were found to have fueled the opioid crisis through their actions. Currently the information the outlet has gathered only reflects the largest settlement to date, which is 26 billion national settlement to be paid out by four pharmaceutical distributors. The dataset will grow with the addition of more payouts in an effort to assess whether settlements help combat the opioid crisis in the United States.
