VA's Follow-up to Pharmacy Fraud Alert

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has reported that the "Patient Care Group" is conducting a scam operation against veterans who receive VA prescriptions. Callers claiming to be representatives of this group tell veterans that their prescriptions are being administered by the company. They then ask for credit card information so that the veterans can continue to receive their medications.

The VA Secretary stated VA has made no change to its prescription system, and that veterans should not provide any information to callers from this group. It is not VA's practice to call veterans requesting disclosure of personal financial information over the phone.
