Florida pharmacies to pay $830K to settle billing fraud claims

Three Florida pharmacies have agreed to pay more than $830,000 to resolve allegations that they conspired to fraudulently bill Medicare and Medicaid for unlawfully prescribed medications. 

Habana Hospital Pharmacy, Longevity Drugs and Forest Hill Pharmacy were accused of using unlawful collaborative pharmacy agreements to write and fill prescriptions without any physician involvement, according to a June 29 U.S. Justice Department news release.  

The settlement resolved allegations filed in a federal whistleblower lawsuit, according to the news release.
