NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a national law firm concentrating on investor rights, consumer rights and the enforcement of federal antitrust laws, is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of PharMerica Corporation ("PharMerica" or the "Company") (NYSE: PMC) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law. The investigation concerns actions by PharMerica's Board of Directors that have allegedly caused the Company to violate the False Claims Act ("FCA") and the Controlled Substances Act ("CSA").
Specifically, on August 9, 2013 the Department of Justice announced that it had filed a suit against PharMerica for violating the FCA and the CSA by dispensing controlled substances without valid prescriptions and causing claims for illegally dispensed drugs to be submitted for reimbursement under the Medicare program. The government's complaint alleges that PharMerica routinely dispensed Schedule II controlled substances in non-emergency situations without first obtaining a written prescription from a treating physician. The complaint alleges that PharMerica knowingly caused the submission of false claims to Medicare for these improperly dispensed Schedule II drugs, in violation of the FCA.
