  • Overview

    This monograph covers the law of health care fraud, with a particular focus on fraud within pharmacy practice settings. The federal legal framework provides opportunities for insiders working at businesses to disclose to the government the existence of fraudulent practices at those businesses. The submission of a false claim for payment can result in significant penalties for a pharmacy business.
