Tamar Tatarian, owner of Akhtmar Pharmacy, was found guilty for her part in a scheme to defraud Medicare out of more than $1.3 million in false claims for prescription drugs. According to evidence presented during the two-day trial, Tatarian submitted false claims to Medicare Part D plan sponsors between October 2015 and October 2017 for prescription drugs that Akhtmar pharmacy had not actually ordered from wholesalers, and therefore were not dispensed to Medicare beneficiaries. Tartarian tried to cover up the fraud by generating fake invoices that included wholesale drug purchases by the pharmacy which had not, in reality, ever happened. Tatarian was convicted of one count of health care fraud and two counts of wire fraud. DOJ
