NHCAA Awards Program Spotlight

Join the investigative team that worked the United States of America v. Dr. N Vahedi Pharmacy Inc. case to explore how the scheme unfolded and investigative strategies deployed. This case involves a Los Angeles pharmacy and its owner, who pleaded guilty to federal criminal charges stemming from a scheme in which millions of dollars in reimbursements for compounded drugs were generated through the payment of illegal kickbacks and fraudulent copayments. This case, which was recognized as a notable case by NHCAA’s 2021 Awards Program, will showcase the type of complex schemes and collaborative environment that it takes to stand out in our 2022 Awards Program submissions.
