TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says that the state will receive nearly $1.5 million as part of a national settlement with a Pennsylvania drug maker.
    
Endo Health will pay almost $193 million to resolve claims that it improperly marketed the shingles treatment Lidoderm for unapproved uses like treating lower back pain.
    
The company will pay $171.9 million in civil false claims settlements largely to the U.S. government, but some of the money is going to 47 states. Endo also agreed to pay $20.8 million as part of a deferred prosecution agreement.
    
Bondi's office said that Endo's alleged conduct caused false claims to be submitted to the Florida Medicaid program.
    
Endo said it was pleased to resolve the issue, and it has programs in place to help it comply with the agreements.
