San Francisco's McKesson Corp. Steals From The Frail

By John Geluardi

The Feds have joined a lawsuit against San Francisco-based McKesson Corporation, which alleges that the medical supplier submitted false claims to Medicare, paid illegal kickbacks and set up a sham company to cover its tracks.

The Department of Justice announced today that it has entered into the lawsuit, which was first filed by an individual whistleblower named Thomas F. Jamison. The suit involves several companies including McKession Medical Surgical Medinet, and Arkansas-based Beverly Enterprises, which operates 345 nursing homes, 18 assisted living centers and 56 hospices.
