A New Jersey Woman Has Been Arrested for A $10 Million Pharmacy Fraud Scheme.

The DOJ says that a woman from New Jersey was arrested on Friday for using pharmacies she ran to bill insurance companies for prescriptions that didn’t exist.

The criminal complaint says that Aysha Khan, a 33-year-old from Kinnelon, was in charge of a network of pharmacies in New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Florida that often filled expensive specialty drugs.

Prosecutors said that she “systematically and on purpose” billed insurance companies for refills of medicines that she never gave to patients.

Officials say that from 2015 to 2022, Khan got more than $10 million from Medicare in reimbursements for prescriptions that were never filled.

She was charged with one count of planning to cheat the healthcare system and four counts of cheating the system.

If she is found guilty on all counts, she could spend up to 50 years in prison and pay a big fine.
