Prescription Drug Fraud

Occasionally, a doctor prescribes too many or the wrong kind of drugs to individuals. Pharmacies may also fill prescriptions with the wrong drugs. In either of these scenarios, the medical professional may be charged with a violation of Health and Safety Code §11153.

Both doctors and pharmacies may report incorrect information to insurance companies or government agencies such as Medi-Cal.

Furthermore, individuals may commit prescription drug fraud in violation of Health and Safety Code §11173.

When these happen, the government may initiation a prosecution for prescription drug fraud. These charges can be both at the state level, as well as at the federal level.
