LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge says the state will receive just more than $121,500 as part of a settlement with Millennium Health over allegations of false billing of Medicare, Medicaid and other federal health programs.

Rutledge said Tuesday that Millennium - formerly known Millennium Laboratories - will pay a total of $256 million to 49 states and the District of Columbia for causing physicians to order unnecessary urine drug tests.

San Diego-based Millennium is one of the largest urine drug testing laboratories in the United States.
