Dallas pharmacy exec admits to selling soldiers unneeded scripts in $50 million kickback fraud

A Dallas pharmacy executive has pleaded guilty to taking part in a massive kickback scheme that scammed the military's insurance program out of more than $100 million, authorities said.

Andrew Joseph Baumiller, 38, of Dallas, pleaded guilty last week to conspiracy to commit health care fraud in connection with Trilogy Pharmacy. He faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.

Baumiller also will be ordered to pay restitution, the U.S. attorney's office said. His sentencing is scheduled for February.

Baumiller admitted to conspiring with doctors, marketers and other pharmacies to defraud Tricare, the military health care system, out of more than $50 million from May 2014 through February 2016, court records show.

The defendants paid kickbacks to physicians for prescribing soldiers expensive and unnecessary compounded pain creams, scar creams and vitamin supplements, court records show. Prosecutors say the pharmacy owners paid kickbacks to their marketers to drum up business. Tricare picked up the tab for the medications.
