The owner of Mississippi-based Medworx Compounding and Custom Care Pharmacy, Marco Bisa Hawkins Moran, has been sentenced to ten years in prison and ordered to pay $34.3 million in fines and restitution following his guilty plea on charges related to a conspiracy to defraud TRICARE and other healthcare programs.  As part of the scheme, which resulted in the submission of $22.1 million in fraudulent claims, Moran and his co-conspirators adjusted prescription formulas to ensure the highest reimbursement, paid marketers and physicians kickbacks and bribes to obtain prescriptions for high-yield compounded medications without regard to medical necessity, and routinely waived and/or reduced the collection of copayments.
