Okay, this is just coming out:
An estimated $500 million Medicaid fraud where Medicaid-covered patients took high-dollar drugs and sold them on the black market and then those
buyers resold them to pharmacies.
So...wow on that part. But look what got stated in this article:
People with real ailments were induced to sell their medications on the cheap rather than take them as prescribed, while end-users of the
diverted drugs were getting second-hand medicine that may have been mishandled, adulterated, improperly stored, repackaged and expired.
That statement is made by Janice Fedarcyk, FBI ASSISTANT DIRECTOR.
Excuse me? Induced? They committed fraud. They took government-paid medications for alleged life-threatening ailments and they sold them for a
profit on the black market. Does this mean that the buyers on the black market are the only ones being prosecuted on this deal?
That statement by the FBI appears to be an intentional portraying of people who have committed fraud as victims.
What the hell is up with that?
This guy (Raymond W. Kelly commissioner NYC PD) has it more correctly portrayed:
It's one thing when people sell their blood for money; it's another when they sell their drugs, especially when the diversion compromises the
pharmaceutical supply with tainted and outdated drugs.
