Pain Cream Compounding Fraud

The government is finally waking up to the fact that Medicare is paying hundreds of millions of dollars each year for prescription creams, gels and lotions made-to-order by pharmacies — mainly as pain treatments. The OIC released a report showing that officials are concerned about possible fraud and patient safety risks from products made at nearly a quarter of the pharmacies that fill the bulk of those prescriptions.

In total, 547 pharmacies — nearly 23 percent of those that submit most of the bills to Medicare for making these creams — hit one or more of five red-flag markers set by investigators.

Watch out if you're a rep still selling these creams. Full report here.

Are reps still selling pain cream as a secondary income or has it completely washed up?

If there is money involved then there will be reps doing it.

The DOJ is not messing around. If you're a rep, stay away from these get rich quickly jobs. If you're already involved, cross your fingers.

Eight Dallas, Texas-area pharmacy owners and marketers were charged in an indictment unsealed today for their roles in a scheme involving approximately $92 million in compound drug claims to TRICARE and the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), which were allegedly the product of over $9.1 million in illegal kickbacks.
