In the largest healthcare fraud case ever to come out of Mississippi, pharmacy owner Thomas Spell has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay over $243 million in restitution for knowingly defrauding TRICARE.  Between 2014 and 2016, Spell and his co-conspirators had deviously marketed compounded medications based on their rate of reimbursement from TRICARE, paid illegal kickbacks to marketers in order to obtain prescriptions from TRICARE beneficiaries, and improperly waived mandatory copayments for TRICARE beneficiaries.  USAO SDMS
