The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Only a physician, or in most states a nurse practitioner, can prescribe controlled medications. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, especially in nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and rehab centers. We would like to speak with anyone with proof of a nursing home or pharmacy is illegally writing or dispensing prescriptions. Rewards for this type of information can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
This is illustrated in a recent case involving the United States government and PharMerica. According to a press release from the Department of Justice, allegedly PharMerica routinely dispensed controlled substances in non-emergency situations without a written prescription from a physician. The suit alleges that PharMerica then knowingly submitted false claims to Medicare for reimbursement.
The lawsuit was filed by a former PharMerica employee under the Whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act. According to provisions of the Act, whistleblowers can sue their employers on behalf of the government, and then receive a portion of the settlement as a reward.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center, which works closely with insiders from nursing homes, rehab centers, and skilled nursing facilities, says, "If a whistleblower at a nursing home, rehab center, or a skilled nursing facility has this type of information and would like to learn more about federal whistleblower reward programs, please call us at 866-714-6466.
