Pharmacist accused of fraud

Saturday, September 7, 2002

ST. LOUIS -- A St. Louis pharmacist was arrested Friday and charged with 12 felony counts of Medicaid fraud, Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon said.

Charges against Bruce Greenwald, 45, were contained in an indictment returned by a grand jury at Nixon's request.

He was charged with eight counts of making a false statement to receive a health care payment, and four counts of stealing by deceit.

Over a one-year period beginning in March 2001, Greenwald misrepresented that he had dispensed prescription drugs to patients in order to receive reimbursement from the Missouri Medicaid program, Nixon said.
