Pharmacies under Attack

Recently, the federal government has been escalating its investigations into compound pharmacies.  In fact, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has openly acknowledged that they are currently focusing their attention on these types of pharmacies.  This new era of investigations into compound pharmacies is characterized by a national effort of various law enforcement agencies and the government’s pursuance of criminal indictments in addition to civil penalties.  In the cases that we have been involved in, agents and government attorneys from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are in charge.  There is no indication that these prosecutions will subside in the near future; to the contrary, our experience leads us to believe that such investigations will continue to increase as the government  remains focused on compound pharmacies.

Reported Examples

Government investigations into compound pharmacies often involve scrutiny for overbilling or billing for unnecessary products, paying kickbacks to physicians, and providing refills that were not requested.
