Over the last several years, federal health care fraud prosecutions have skyrocketed. Most recently, the government has focused intensely on physicians and other health care professionals who have written a high-volume of prescriptions for compounded topical pain and scar creams between 2013 and mid-2015. Specifically, the government is closely scrutinizing whether physicians had financial incentives from compounding pharmacies, or from affiliated marketing companies, to write these high dollar value prescriptions. 

Prosecution Method and Theories

The government has several prosecution theories, and the following circumstances are likely to trigger government scrutiny:
