Mr. Schiff: It was s $17 million Health Care Fraud case. Special Agent Paul Wackes of the FBI's Miami office investigated...
Mr. Wackes: "An insurance company had notified authorities of a suspected prescription drug billing scheme involving a pharmacy located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida."
Mr. Schiff: Wackes says the FBI worked with the Food and Drug Administration...
Mr. Wackes: "Much of the evidence in this case was gathered through the execution of a search warrant that was done on the pharmacy as well as other locations."
Mr. Schiff: About a hundred insurance companies were defrauded...
Mr. Wackes: "Evidence such as insurance records, bank account information and other documents were obtained through grand jury subpoenas."
Mr. Schiff: Wackes says the pharmacist sent in the phony claims...
Mr. Wackes: "Once the pharmacist had the name of a doctor as a prescribing physician, all he then needs is the name and health insurance information from a patient."
Mr. Schiff: Suspects convicted in the prescription billing scheme faced Health Care Fraud, Bankruptcy Fraud and Wire Fraud charges. I'm Neal Schiff of the Bureau and that's the FBI's Closed Case of the Week."
