FBI, DOJ share info on fraudulent prescriptions affecting physicians, patients

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice are sharing information with healthcare organizations on approximately 60 fraudulent prescription requests affecting physicians and patients across the U.S. Since March 2017, several partially-identified pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies have requested medical prescriptions and/or supplies without the physician’s and patient’s knowledge, according to the FBI and DOJ notice. The companies sent the alleged fraudulent requests, which included ointments, over-the-counter medications and diabetic supplies, through a fax-to-computer system originating from doctors’ offices across the country. For more details, see the FBI and DOJ notice. If you have knowledge of such activity, report it to your security office, wfhealthcarefraud@ic.fbi.gov and your local FBI field office.
