Three physicians and five marketers have been charged in U.S. District Court with violations of the federal anti-kickback statute and other criminal offenses, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. The men allegedly caused federal health care insurance programs to pay reimbursement costs for fraudulent and expensive compounding drug prescriptions written by recruited doctors in return for kickback payments. The defendants would then use the reimbursed funds for their own financial gain.
