Khoa Tan Huynh, owner of Script Life Pharmacy in Clovis, has agreed to pay $200,000 to settle civil claims of statutory violations with the Department of Justice.
According to the settlement agreement, Script Life Pharmacy was accused of accepting and filling prescriptions that lacked required information, including the prescribers’ DEA registration numbers and signatures.
A June 2013 audit also revealed shortages of several controlled substances and overages of several others.
“Abuse of prescription drugs is a significant societal problem. Pharmacies must take great care to ensure that controlled substances do not end up in the wrong hands. This settlement underscores the federal commitment to holding accountable dispensaries of controlled substances,” said U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner in a statement.
