What is Medicaid Fraud?

On June 13, 2024, two health care executives of Done Global Inc were indicted for health care fraud related charges.  The indictment alleges that the two participated in a scheme to distribute Adderall over the internet, conspire to commit health care fraud in connection with the submission of false and fraudulent claims for reimbursement for Adderall and other stimulants, and obstruct justice.

“As alleged, these defendants exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to develop and carry out a $100 million scheme to defraud taxpayers and provide easy access to Adderall and other stimulants for no legitimate medical purpose,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland.   These arrests mark the DOJ’s 1st criminal drug distribution prosecutions related to prescribing via telemedicine, the agency said.
