It would be nice if pharmacies operated in the “real world”… The world inhabited by auto parts stores and widget manufacturers. Unfortunately, pharmacies are not in the real world. They are in Alice in Wonderland where “up is down, down is up, and every day they climb through the proverbial rabbit hole.” In this alternative universe, pharmacies are subjected to numerous federal and state anti-fraud statutes and regulations. What would be perfectly acceptable in the auto parts world may be a felony in the health care world. This program will discuss the many anti-fraud statutes and regulations that the pharmacy must follow. More importantly, this program will teach the pharmacy how to recognize fraud landmines so that the pharmacy does not step on them.
At the conclusion of this program, the pharmacist and technician attendee will be able to:
- Discuss federal and state anti-fraud laws that govern pharmacies.
- Identify the marketing programs and business arrangements that are legally acceptable.
- Identify the marketing programs and business arrangements that are prohibited by law.
- Explain how government enforcement actions are brought against pharmacies.
