Compounding pharmacies accused of fishing for Tricare business

AMSUS SmartBrief | Apr 15, 2015

Some compounding pharmacies or their marketing agencies are calling Tricare enrollees and encouraging them to use compounded drugs for pain, wounds and erectile dysfunction, Tricare officials say. One marketer allegedly parked a food truck outside the main gate of a military base and offered free food to Tricare beneficiaries who completed requests for compounded drugs. Marketers are also touting compounded drugs on Craigslist as "a free fringe benefit" for Tricare enrollees. Military Times (04/10)
