As part of today’s settlement, Grossman admitted that, from March 2010 through March 2017, she submitted or caused others to submit false claims for payment to Medicare and Medicaid for prescription drugs that she and the staff at Nassau Pharmacy never dispensed. In some instances, she billed Medicare and Medicaid for drugs that patients never ordered or never picked up from Nassau Pharmacy. In other instances, Grossman billed the government for brand name drugs but dispensed to her patients less expensive generic alternatives.
