FRAUD


1. Pharmacy: A NJ pharmacist, with a compounding pharmacy in Lakewood, NJ, pleads guilty to charges of conspiracy to violate the Anti-Kickback Statute (by paying more than $50,000 to a middle person to bribe physicians for referring pain cream prescriptions) and to committing healthcare fraud (by falsely representing the pain cream, which was not covered by many insurance companies including Medicare, as another medication in order to obtain reimbursement). The original complaint was filed by the U.S. Attorneys Office, District of New Jersey, in January 2014. Sentencing is scheduled for 1/20/2015 and carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, $250,000 fine, and forfeiture of any proceeds derived from his offense. (United States of America v. Vladmir Kleyman, aka Pinchas Kleyman)
