One of the owners of an unnamed compounded drug marketing company has pleaded guilty to defrauding a state employee health benefit plan. According to the complaint, over the course of a year, Robert Madonna and others bribed a number of state employees to obtain prescriptions for medically unnecessary but expensive compounded drugs, including vitamins and creams to manage fungus, pain, and scars. The alleged fraud caused more than $2 million in losses to the New Jersey State Health Benefits Plan. Madonna will now pay $2,092,791 in restitution and be sentenced early next year to a possible maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. USAO NJ
