The United States government is the world’s largest purchaser of prescription drugs, buying billions of dollars of drugs a year under Medicare, Medicaid, the VA, and other government healthcare programs. The fraud committed against these programs by the pharmaceutical industry has been substantial. Some of the largest whistleblower claims ever filed have been brought against drug manufacturers, charging them with Medicare or Medicaid fraud for practices that have included:
- Paying kickbacks to physicians, hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, or pharmacists.
- Failing to report, or providing false or misleading data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
- “Off-label” marketing.
- Defective drugs.
- Safety problems.
- Drug pricing fraud
