It had been a rather dreary stretch as I hadn't come across anyone worth busting in about four months now. Personally I like doing a little PI work at work, makes me feel like Matlock... you know because of all the old people and fixodent in the store.
My favorite is I busted someone who has been using three different docs with three pharmacists for at least seven years. I went to bill her fioricet and it came up rejected as an early refill which was weird because she wasn't early at all.
The insurance in question has a knack for giving false rejects, so I figured I'd call them and have them fix whatever the fucked up this time.
Turnout one of her pharmacies auto filled her fioricet under her insurance on accident on the sixth. As I inquired more I found out about the other pharmacy and doc.
I call pharmacy number one and they talk about what a sweet lady she is and that they hoped she wasn't transferring out. Needless to say they were more than a little surprised when I explained the situation.
Pharmacy number two was a big chain who didn't seem to give a rat's ass, which is somewhat typical around here.
You guys wanna know the best part? She had a narc contract too. With TWO docs.
How the hell she had pulled this off, I have no idea, but I give her props. Sadly, there will be no more fioricet or tramadol or hydrocodone or phentermine or any other fun things.
I suppose the best part is she really has no idea until her appointment next Monday... when there will be a phone conference with three very pissed off docs.
Damn I wish I could be there for that.
And that was just one of the four today. Like I said, it was a bitchin' day all day long. Maybe I should start a secondary business some day.
It's got a nice ring to it, no?Phathead, R.Ph. - Private Eye
