Omnicare Cheated U.S., Illinois, Ex-Pharmacist Claims in Lawsuit

Omnicare Inc. was accused in a lawsuit by a former company pharmacist of overbilling the U.S. and Illinois governments for drugs it supplied to nursing homes,

The pharmacist, Peter Ordeanu, alleged in a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Chicago that he and others at the company were required to enter false billing information that caused the state and federal governments to pay for medications that were more costly than those actually being dispensed.
