Kmart To Pay $2.55M For FCA Fraud

The Kmart discount chain, in order to settle False Claims Act complaints, has agreed to pay $2.55 million.

Kmart violated the False Claims Act by billing Medicaid, the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program, and other health programs for all drugs included in a prescription in cases when it dispensed only part of the prescribed drugs.  The other drugs were returned to inventory.

The whistleblower in this case, an ex-Kmart pharmacist, will receive a $310,000 reward.
