Government Settles $1.2 Million Lawsuit Against Florida Compounding Pharmacy And Its Owner For Excessive Charges To TRICARE
Tampa - U.S. Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announces that the United States has settled allegations that a Tampa-based compounding pharmacy, now-defunct RS Compounding, LLC, and its owner, Renier Gobea, knowingly billed TRICARE excessive prices for compounded prescriptions. In reaching this settlement, the parties resolved allegations that, between January 1, 2012, and January 31, 2014, Gobea and RS Compounding charged TRICARE at least 2,000 percent more for drugs than they charged cash-paying customers, in violation of the False Claims Act.
