Through a tip by Connecticut State Comptroller, Kevin Lembo, a Florida-based compounding pharmacy, Assured, Rx, along with multiple individuals—many of them former and current Connecticut state government employees—have been sued by the State of Connecticut for alleged violations of the Connecticut False Claims Act. The pharmacy is accused of paying kickbacks to co-defendants Nicholas and Lisette Maulucci, who then paid other individuals to file reimbursement claims from a state employee health plan for expensive compound drugs manufactured by Assured, Rx. Through their actions, the Mauluccis allegedly received kickbacks totaling upward of $2.6 million, and cost the Connecticut Pharmacy Benefit Plan approximately $10.9 million. CT AG
