RS Compounding, Inc, and its owner, Renier Gobea, have agreed to pay $1.2 million to settle a False Claims Act-based lawsuit by whistleblower McKenzie Stepe that the now defunct compounding pharmacy had overcharged TRICARE, at times by as much as 10,000% more than it charged members of the general public. The alleged fraud occurred between 2012 and 2014. According to the DOJ, TRICARE’s costs for compounded drugs have ballooned from $5 million to over $500 million in the span of ten years, then increased by over 150% between 2014 and 2015 alone. Tragically, the whistleblower passed away before the settlement was finalized, so her estate will receive her relator’s share of $264,000. DOJ
