BALTIMORE (AP) -- A pharmacy owner and two workers have been indicted on charged of health care fraud and identity theft in an alleged plot to submit false claims to Medicaid and Medicare.
Forty-five-year-old Reddy Vijay Annappareddy of Fallston, 30-year-old Vipinkumar Patel of Edgewood and 27-year-old Jigar Patel of Columbia were indicted July 23. The Patels are not related.
Prosecutors say the three identified customers at two Bel Air pharmacies who had prescription refills available. Authorities say the three would file claims for reimbursement, and restock medications that were not delivered or picked up.
Prosecutors say the alleged scheme defrauded $2.6 million from Medicaid and Medicare.
