Compounding Pharmacy Health Care Fraud
Federal prosecution is cracking down on pharmaceutical companies across the nation. While New Jersey and Delaware have a high number of cases, any state where medical insurance companies are incorporated could face prosecution. At our firm, we represent clients facing charges of federal crimes and health care fraud related to the pharmaceutical industry, and we have guided numerous clients through the Florida legal system.
Charges are being brought against many individuals, including:
- Pharmaceutical sales representatives
- Pharmacy owners
- Compounding pharmacists
Supposedly, these individuals are filling prescriptions at compounding pharmacies for outrageously priced “medications.” They then send the bill to their medical insurance carriers for reimbursement. However, the compounded medications are nothing more than simple, over-the-counter drugs and creams. The compounding pharmacists are making a fortune off of the fake prescriptions, and pharmaceutical sales representatives are getting kickbacks for the medications as well. Meanwhile, health insurance companies are losing millions of dollars for the scam.
If you have been charged with pharmaceutical health care fraud, it is important to obtain legal representation right away. A conviction could lead to heavy fines, prison time, and a permanent mark on your criminal record. We are passionate about defending clients’ rights in court.
