Oklahoma pharmacy owner charged in $1M Medicare, Medicaid scam

An Oklahoma pharmacy owner has been charged with orchestrating a scheme that defrauded Medicare and Medicaid out of more than $1 million.

In an indictment unsealed last week, prosecutors claim that Jeffery Terry submitted false claims to SoonerCare and Medicare Part D for drugs that were not prescribed or dispensed to patients.

Officials say Mr. Terry received nearly $1.1 million from the scam.

The 37-year-old owner of Bratton Drug in Magnum, Okla., was indicted by a federal grand jury in early March. If convicted, Mr. Terry faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
