The opioid epidemic has wreaked havoc on communities, causing an upswing in opioid abuse, and leading to an increase in criminal cases involving prescription medications. The government has responded with new laws and stricter oversight, which have far-reaching implications for patients who legitimately need treatment for severe or chronic pain and their doctors. However, closer scrutiny of those suspected of illegal drug diversion has also become a necessary measure.
Drug diversion is the illegal use, trading, or sale of prescription medications. Any misuse of a prescription or prescribed medicine could be considered drug diversion. That includes abusing your own medications or giving them to someone else. Drug diversion is a serious crime, and any charge of drug diversion requires the services of a seasoned lawyer, like Attorney Todd Spodek, who has extensive experience in this area of law.
The different types of drug diversion include doctor shopping, selling prescription drugs, online pharmaceutical sales, drug theft, prescription fraud, and illicit prescribing.
Doctor shopping is the practice of going from doctor to doctor in an attempt to get multiple prescriptions under false pretenses. The DEA closely monitors such individuals.
Selling prescription drugs is engaging in illicit drug trafficking even if the drugs are legally prescribed to you.
Online pharmaceutical sales have become a booming industry, especially from countries that have fewer restrictions over controlled substances. Rogue pharmacies are set up online to sell medications that are tightly regulated in the United States to patients without a legal prescription.
Drug theft involves stealing a controlled substance from a manufacturing plant, robbing a pharmacy or medical facility, or stealing them from a legal prescription holder.
Prescription fraud can involve anything from using someone else’s prescription to stealing prescription pads from a doctor’s office or clinic and forging a prescription.
Illicit prescribing is part of DEA oversight, which monitors doctors who prescribe medically unnecessary medications or who write an unusually large number of prescriptions for commonly abused medications. Such medical practitioners are suspected of running an illegal ‘pill mill.’
Due to the vast number of potential sources for drug diversion, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has developed a warning system to alert them to possible abuses. The DEA uses ‘red flag’ indicators to identify doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and others along the supply chain for further scrutiny.
Doctors may not be aware of DEA scrutiny or the fact that some of their practices are considered red flag indicators until their practice is raided. A drug diversion lawyer from Spodek Law Group can audit your practice for indicators and devise changes to help you meet compliance. Here are some things that could draw attention to your office:
All doctors and pharmacists have a duty to report any suspicious behavior from staff or patients. Under the Affordable Care Act, practices suspected of engaging in drug diversion could have Medicaid reimbursement suspended. They may also be terminated from participation in Medicaid or Medicare. Anyone found guilty of drug diversion faces fines, restitution, imprisonment, and loss of their medical or pharmaceutical license. You’re also legally required to report suspected drug diversion, thefts, break-ins, or missing medications to the DEA.
