SALT LAKE CITY -- A drug manufacturer has agreed to pay Utah $1 million to settle allegations it overcharged the state's Medicaid program.

Napa, Calif.-based Dey L.P. was accused of manipulating the prices of its drugs to boost sales at pharmacies.

The company denied any wrongdoing as part of the settlement.

Utah Attorney General Paul Shurtleff says his office is negotiating settlements with about three dozen other drug makers facing similar allegations.
