Four Dozen Charged in Massive Medicaid Scheme
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan charged four dozen people in a scheme to illegally resell prescription drugs obtained by Medicaid recipients, reports CNN.com.
The scheme involved hundreds of millions of dollars worth of prescription drugs obtained from Medicaid recipients. The accused bought the drugs at discounted rates and then resold them through a corrupt network of wholesale distributors, according to CNN.
The drugs included treatment for schizophrenia, HIV and asthma. Some cost more than $1,000 a bottle, CNN reported.
The arrests range from people who bought the drugs on the street to those who resold them to a distributor.
