Owner of Brooklyn and Queens pharmacies charged in healthcare fraud and kickback scheme

Robert John Sabet, the owner of Brooklyn Chemists in Gravesend, Brooklyn, and Lucky Care Pharmacy in Flushing, Queens, has been charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud, conspiracy to defraud by paying kickbacks and bribes in connection with the provision of health care services, and unlawfully spending the proceeds of his fraud, as was set forth in an indictment unsealed on Wednesday in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Sabet was arraigned Wednesday afternoon via videoconference before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ramon E. Reyes, Jr.

According to the indictment, since September 2016, Sabet allegedly conspired to bill Medicare and Medicaid for expensive prescription drugs that were not eligible for reimbursement because they were not needed or not dispensed.
