Jami Little Defense Health Agency What the Fraud Is This
Everywhere our society looks, and listens are statistics and accounts of the destruction of the fentanyl crisis that is facing every layer of our nation.  Health care providers are tagging the line “One Pill Can Kill” and experiencing in real time the reality of a nation that is willing to die for a high.  In 2015, Naloxone (Narcan) was approved by the FDA and is now utilized in society much like AED systems.  The issuance of one dose of Narcan can biologically bring someone back from their near grave due to an overdose, whether the overdose was intentional or not.  The administering does not require health care expertise and is virtually as simple as administering a nose spray for seasonal allergies.
Narcan is approved and covered by the 340B Drug Pricing Program which was originally enacted in 1992 with the objective to serve large numbers of low-income, Medicaid, uninsured and under-insured populations with care, regardless of their ability to pay.  Beyond the 340B Drug Pricing Program, grant funds have been issued by local, state, and federal funding to cover the costs of having this life saving medication available to administer wherever possible.  Consumers are now being encouraged to carry a dose on their person, school districts have Narcan readily available schools, and law enforcement agencies report dosing subjects on the street on at least one shift per week.  Much like the idea of having a baby aspirin in one’s purse to assist in the event of a heart attack, Narcan is marketed in the same way.However, who is getting rich from the goodness of the 340B Program and the widely distributed Narcan product?  Where are the holes for schemers to financially benefit from the readily available Narcan medication?  Wherever there is money to be made there is opportunity for financial abuse and/or fraud, Narcan is no different.  This presentation will explore and identify the holes of the 340B Program and where payors can troubleshoot to identify prospective players who have their pocketbooks taking priority over the health and wellbeing of an addicted nation.

Amy Nofziger AARP Changing the Narrative. How the money is only one loss to victims: Stop placing blame on the victims of fraud: by changing the narrative we might prevent some of the mental health problems many victims experience after these crimes, which can be both emotionally and financially devastating.
