Insys Therapeutics executives were convicted for their part in a racketeering conspiracy where they defrauded Medicare and private insurance carriers. From May 2012 to December 2015, the defendants bribed medical practitioners to prescribe Subsys, an extremely addictive sublingual fentayl spray intended for use by cancer patients. In furtherance of these efforts, the defendants provided kickbacks to practitioners who increased their Subsys prescriptions. The defendants also defrauded health insurance providers who were hesitant to approve payment for the drug when it was prescribed for non-cancer patients. DOJ
