(PHARMACY) PERSCRIPTION FRAUD

Forwarded by YNCS Don Harribine, USN (Ret)

It has been reported that veterans are receiving calls from a company identifying itself as the “Patient Care Group.” This company is claiming that veteran's prescriptions are now being dispensed through them and if they wanted to continue to receive their meds, they would need to provide a credit card number.

Veterans are to be advised that the VA has not changed the process of receiving and dispensing prescriptions. Veterans are also advised to never give out their personal information including social security numbers and credit card numbers to any organization without first verifying their legitimacy.
