Every month we publish a newsletter and, it seems, every month we report a new criminal indictment related to a provider involved in some sort of criminal activity. The latest compound cream scheme involved pain management doctor Adam Gallardo Arredondo of the Texas Anesthesia & Pain Institute. The federal grand jury indictment alleges Dr. Arredondo, a Texas physician, accepted kickbacks from an OK Pharmacy (an Oklahoma compounding pharmacy) for prescribing excessive – allegedly – compound drugs to patients insured under the federal workers’ compensation system and other federal programs. Dr. Arredondo also – allegedly – accepted payments for recruiting other physicians to prescribe compound drugs for the OK Pharmacy.
Maybe next month we won’t have any indictments to report . . . but I wouldn’t count on it.
