A Mars man has been sentenced for his role in an alleged fraud scheme at a Beaver County-based pharmacy chain.
Gino Cordisco, 48, has been sentenced to serve one year and one day after his conviction on one count of conspiracy.
Cordisco was the Vice President of Store Operations for Med-Fast Pharmacy. The company is accused of defrauding Medicare and Pennsylvania Medicaid programs by intentionally mislabeling and re-using old medication from nursing homes.
As part of the conspiracy, Cordisco is alleged to have made several false statements to a DEA Special Agent during an interview in 2013. There is no evidence that any patient was harmed as a result of this conspiracy.
The owner of Med-Fast is Cranberry Township resident Douglas Kaleugher.
