CVS Pharmacy settles federal claims in Okla.

Wednesday - 4/3/2013, 6:38pm  ET

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A federal prosecutor says CVS Pharmacy Inc. has agreed to pay $11 million to settle allegations that the company's Oklahoma pharmacies violated record-keeping requirements of the Controlled Substances Act.

U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats in Oklahoma City announced the settlement deal on Wednesday.

Woonsocket, R.I.-based CVS acknowledged that its stores must comply with the record-keeping requirements. But the company did not admit liability.

The allegations against CVS included that some of its stores created false Drug Enforcement Administration registration numbers that were sometimes provided to state prescription drug monitoring programs.

CVS operates 46 pharmacy retail stores in Oklahoma.
