Pharmacy and Prescription Drug Fraud

Pharmacy and Prescription Drug Fraud

Pharmacy and prescription drug fraud is a consistent trend in Medicare. Due to the lucrative nature of prescription drug diversion and pharmacy scams, criminals continue to exploit Medicare Part D. Although there are many types of prescription drug schemes, pharmacy fraud primarily occurs when Medicare is billed for a medication that was not received or a beneficiary is intentionally given a different prescription drug than was prescribed. 


To report suspected pharmacy and prescription drug fraud, contact the Senior Medicare Patrol at 877.808.2468.
