Defense of Compounding Pharmacy Marketing Agents
Marketers and sales representatives who worked with compounding pharmacies are also under intense federal government scrutiny. The government has focused on several fact patterns, including:
- Marketers and sales representatives that enrolled physicians and medical providers into speaker programs;
- Marketers and sales representatives that hired physicians and medical providers as medical directors;
- Marketers and sales representatives that received percentage-based commissions from compounding pharmacies;
- Marketers who engaged in direct marketing to Tricare beneficiaries, and who steer these Tricare beneficiaries to select doctors; and
- Marketing agents who use “mass marketing” call centers and/or telemedicine companies. The government closely scrutinizes arrangements whereby telemedicine doctors receive a flat fee for every patient who receives a compounded pain or scar cream.
