A.G. Schneiderman Announces Arrests of Pharmacy Owners and Pharmacist for Operating Illegal Prescription Buyback Operation

NEW YORK -- Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest of three men for defrauding government-funded health care programs by buying back prescriptions and billing Medicaid as if the medication had been dispensed. The two owners of 184th Street Pharmacy in the Bronx, along with the supervising pharmacist, targeted financially vulnerable patients, putting their health at risk by paying them to forgo necessary anti-retroviral HIV medications.
