DAB: CMS Revokes Pharmacy’s Medicare Supplier Number After Owner Indicted

The DHHS Departmental Appeals Board (“DAB”) upheld the revocation of a pharmacy’s supplier number even after the tainted owner sold his interest to the remaining owner who was not involved in the fraud.  In Main Street Pharmacy, LLC v.Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Docket No. C -10-359, Decision No. CR2160, June 18, 2010, the DAB Administrative Law Judge upheld the revocation because of findings that the pharmacy’s enrollment information with the National Supplier Clearinghouse was not timely updated to reflect the transfer to the non-tainted owner.
