Hayat settles $2M in Medicare, Medicaid fraud case despite disputing vigorously

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — The Health Mart Independent Pharmacy of the year, Hayat Pharmacy, has settled out of court over allegations of Medicare and Medicaid fraud for over $2 million.

Hashim Zaibak, Hayat pharmacist and CEO of the company, said the accusations were made by a former employee over two years ago.

He claims the allegations are false, and the company is trying to move forward.

“From the very beginning, we knew that they were false and they could not be proven. At the end we had to settle, though,” said Zaibak.

State representatives honored Hayat Pharmacy Friday as pharmacy of the year, with a plaque from Governor Tony Evers.

The same day, the U.S. Department of Justice announced a $2 million settlement over fraud.
