Janesville Pharmacist Arraigned in Million Dollar Fraud Scheme

Mark Johnson, a pharmacist operating out of Janesville, WI, is being brought in on federal fraud charges after reportedly withholding $1 million from Medicaid and Medicare. The federal grand jury in Madison issued a 46-count indictment that included accusations of falsifying prescriptions for federal reimbursement, lying to auditors and identity theft.

Johnson, 55, is the owner and president of Kealey Pharmacy and Home Care in Janesville. Much of the fraud evidence was found when the pharmacy was raided by the Department of Health and Human Services back in 2014.

Johnson is being brought up ion 39 health care fraud charges, each with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, as well as false statements charges with maximum penalties of 5 years and six identity theft charges with mandatory penalties of 2 years in prison.
