A Georgia man accused of masterminding a fraud scheme against TRICARE has been sentenced to 8 years in prison and ordered to pay a combined $8 million in restitution and forfeiture.  Coordinated by Michael Burton, the scheme ran from 2014 to 2015 and involved multiple co-defendants and a Florida-based pharmacy.  Together, their cumulative actions caused TRICARE to spent millions of dollars on medically unnecessary compounded prescription drugs, and earned Burton over $1.4 million in commissions.  USAO NDFL
