Kline & Specter’s David Caputo and David Williams represented a whistleblower in a case pressed by the U.S. Department of Justice and the New York Attorney General’s Office in a health care fraud case that resulted in a $10 million settlement with CareMed Pharmaceutical Services. The civil lawsuit claimed that the national specialty pharmacy engaged in fraudulent practices in connection with its sale of prescription drugs to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. CareMed also allegedly re-stocked and re-sold unused medications and failed to reverse claims submitted for unused or unnecessary prescription refills. Caputo’s client, a former CareMed employee, will receive a whistleblower reward of $1.85 million. Caputo told the news media: “This case demonstrates once again what whistleblowers, their attorneys, and their partners in the government can accomplish when working together to combat fraud.” Learn more about whistleblower lawsuits.
