PRESCRIPTION FRAUD IN NEVADA

Whether you are a physician or a patient, being charged with prescription fraud can result in severe penalties, such as years in prison, costly fines, and permanent damage to your professional reputation.

Prescription fraud can entail creating a fake prescription, faking medical conditions or symptoms to obtain a prescription or even altering a valid prescription. A common type of prescription fraud is called “doctor shopping,” which is when a patient gains prescription for a drug from several physicians without informing them that the patient has already received prescriptions for the controlled substance.

Doctors and other medical providers can only prescribe or administer drugs when a legitimate medical need is present. Pharmacists are prohibited from filling prescriptions that are unlawful or suspected to be unlawful.

Prescription fraud penalties are considered Category C felonies. A Class C felony is punishable by a prison sentence of one to five years and a fine of up to $5,000.
