Pharmacy Daily - - NEWS -

A PHAR­MACY in the USA has this week reached a set­tle­ment with pros­e­cu­tors in re­la­tion to al­le­ga­tions of a ma­jor health-care fraud scheme.

John Lem­ley, owner of South­ern Compounding in Illi­nois, has en­tered a plea agree­ment on charges of con­spir­ing to de­fraud pre­scrip­tion ben­e­fit schemes of more than US$10 mil­lion.

Pros­e­cu­tors al­leged im­proper con­tracts, kick­backs and script forg­eries, in­clud­ing sell­ing mis­branded OTC drugs as pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions.
