Psychiatrist Michael Reinstein Busted For Taking Kickbacks

A follow up to the previous post.  What did this Chicago psych do to get busted?  Are not all bio-psychs taking kickbacks from Pharmaceutical companies in one form or another and distributing pills inappropriate for the patient’s condition?  Maybe it was the amount.

Note the miniscule amount of the fines for the pharmaceutical companies compared to their profits.

“Teva Pharmaceuticals USA and IVAX Pharmaceuticals paid $27.6 million to settle allegations they violated the state and federal False Claims acts by making payments to Reinstein in exchange for prescriptions, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.”
