It goes without saying that prescription drugs are a big business. Indeed, a person wouldn’t have to look any further than right here in the U.S. for proof of this fact, as millions of people currently rely on a seemingly endless number of prescription drugs to treat a seemingly endless number of medical conditions from diabetes and depression to cholesterol and chronic pain.
In light of this reality, it should come as no surprise to learn that the production, the delivery and even the prescribing of these drugs is an incredibly complex process. Indeed, insurance companies, physicians and other parties frequently enter into complicated business arrangements calling for various reimbursement procedures.
While there is certainly nothing wrong with these types of arrangements, the fact remains that both state and federal law enforcement can sometimes become convinced that the lines have somehow become blurred, and that the parties are engaged in fraudulent or otherwise illegal activity.
Indeed, a physician can suddenly face charges of accepting bribes to write certain prescriptions or a health care facility can suddenly become the focus of an investigation into whether it’s billing the government for unnecessary drugs.
Given everything that is at stake both personally and professionally in these prescription drug fraud cases, any individual or organization either facing charges or under active investigation must consider retaining the services of a highly skilled legal professional as soon as possible.
