The Prosecution of Pharma Gets Personal
April 1, 2011
In September 2010, Nature Medicine asked Jeb White to tackle the number one issue undermining government healthcare programs. In a widely-circulated Op-ed piece, Mr. White opined that pharmaceutical fraud was a continuing drain on government healthcare programs because the masterminds of the frauds steal with impunity and never face jail time. In a follow-up April 2011 article, Nature credited Mr. White’s Op-ed piece for spotlighting this enforcement blind spot. Since then, a number of government officials have echoed these arguments in the halls of Congress.
