People behind Grand Rapids-area pharmacy scheme face prison time, restitution
The former CEO of a pharmacy in the Grand Rapids area has pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit healthcare fraud. The conspiracy involves dozens of employees.
Workers at Kentwood Pharmacy allegedly collected unused prescription drugs from about 800 nursing homes and homes for adult foster care. The drugs were unused for a variety of reasons, including when a patient died. Workers then repackaged the drugs, sometimes in their homes, and sold them again.
A few employees will go to prison. Others will find out later this week how much restitution they’ll have to pay.
But the former CEO, Kim Mulder, faces up to ten years in prison when he’s sentenced in July.
