CAMDEN — A Northfield pharmaceutical representative admitted his role Monday in a health care fraud conspiracy and to obstructing justice by telling witnesses to lie to the grand jury investigating the scheme, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Monday.
Mark Bruno, 45, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Robert B. Kugler to conspiracy to commit health care fraud and obstruction of justice, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said in a news release.
Bruno worked for a company that marketed compounded medications and received a percentage of the insurance payments.
He introduced a doctor to the company and received a percentage of the payments for prescriptions the doctor wrote, Carpenito said. Bruno and others paid the doctor to reward him for signing prescriptions.
