Ten, including Pharmacy Owners, Pharmacist, and Nurse Practitioner, Charged in Over $200 Million Prescription Drug Fraud

BIRMINGHAM - Ten defendants were charged in a 103-count indictment, including a nurse practitioner, and the owners, a pharmacist, managers, sales representatives, and billers, of a Haleyville, Ala.-based pharmacy, Northside Pharmacy doing business as Global Compounding Pharmacy. The indictment charges them with fraudulently billing health care insurers and prescription drug administrators for over $200 million in prescription drugs.
