The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "On August 9th, 2013 the United States Department of Justice reported they had filed suit against PharMerica Corp, a long-term care pharmacy that provides drugs to residents of long-term care facilities, under the False Claims Act. The suit alleges that PharMerica violated the False Claims Act and the Controlled Substances Act by dispensing drugs without a valid prescription and then submitting these claims to the Medicare program. The lawsuit alleges that many of these drugs were listed as Schedule II drugs under the Controlled Substances Act, which can be very harmful if taken improperly, and also have a high rate of dependence."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center believes this specific Justice Department case is the tip of a gigantic iceberg, based on their work with whistleblowers, especially related to nursing homes, or skilled nursing facilities. The group says, "We see very little evidence of the government actually checking to see if prescriptions were properly ordered, or are being properly dispensed. Furthermore, many of the types of drugs we have seen illegally prescribed are extremely expensive, and there can be numerous prescriptions for just one person. If you are a pharmacy manager, executive, or a pharmacist, and you can prove these types of practices please call us at 866-714-6466, so we can explain federal whistleblower reward programs, and get you in touch with some of the nation's premier whistleblower attorneys. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
