A Dearborn pharmacist accused of prescribing medication to dead people and billing Medicare and Medicaid is now facing serious consequences.
Haytham “Tom” Fakih is no stranger to the spotlight. Local 4 interviewed him in April after he began using halal meat in his Sonic restaurant in Dearborn. His restaurant received national attention for the move.
Now, Fakih is back in the news. Federal prosecutors said he is accused of cheating Medicare and Medicaid by charging for medication prescribed to dead people from his Dearborn pharmacy, Trudell Health Mart Pharmacy.
