The owner is now facing billing fraud in the amount of $2.25 million based on what she earned in reselling the drugs.  She could not face up to 10 years in prison, plus fines. The nursing homes employing participants in the scheme were undisclosed.  For more, read the story. ____________________________________________________________________________
