Rouzbeh Javaherian, owner of Los Angeles-based Westaid Pharmacy and Medical Supply, was sentenced to 18 months in prison and to pay $644,060 in restitution for his role in a fraud scheme involving the Medicare Part D prescription drug program. Specifically, Javaherian paid illegal cash kickbacks to Medicare beneficiaries to induce them to submit their prescriptions to Westaid. Javaherian then filled some of those prescriptions, but also submitted false claims to Medicare Part D plan sponsors for prescriptions that he did not actually fill. DOJ
