Med-Fast Pharmacy, Inc. and its owner Douglas Kaleugher agreed to pay roughly $2.7 million to settle charges of violating the False Claims Act by distributing and submitting claims to Medicare for medication that it had either recycled from long-term care facilities serviced by its institutional pharmacy, or that otherwise differed from the medications identified as part of the claims submitted to the government.  The government further alleged the company sought reimbursement for the retail-packaged version of diabetes testing strips, while actually supplying patients with cheaper mail-order-packaged version of the same strips.  The allegations originated in two whistleblower lawsuits filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  The whistleblowers will receive an award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery. DOJ (WDPA)
