Boston Pharmacist Indicted for Fraudulent Billings

Former Roxbury pharmacist and Roslindale resident Aloysius Chukwukere Nsonwu was indicted by a Suffolk County Grand Jury on 51 charges in connection with fraudulent billings for HIV medications that were never prescribed or, in some cases, never received by patients. Nsonwu is alleged to have fraudulently submitted false claims to MassHealth totaling over $550,000.

The Suffolk Grand Jury indictments were returned as a result of an investigation initiated by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office concerning billings Nsonwu submitted between December 2004 and January 2009. The Attorney General’s Office reports that each [fraudulent] claim listed a prescribing doctor who either never treated the named patient or prescribed the requested medication.

Nsonwu is charged with several counts of Submitting False Claims, and Larceny.
