Roy Katz
Roy Katz (March 30, 2010) Roy D. Katz, 52, of Avon, also pleaded guilty in Superior Court in Hartford to two counts of fourth-degree vendor fraud, a misdemeanor. He received a two-year suspended sentence and three years' probation. Katz's former business, RG Pharmacy Inc. - the previous owner of The Medicine Shoppe at 348 Main St. - illegally converted 30-day, 60-day and 90-day prescriptions into smaller, multiple prescriptions for seven days, according to state documents. Katz, the former president of the Connecticut Pharmaceutical Association, directed employees to charge customers several additional dispensing fees per prescription from October 1999 to October 2007. The total overcharges were estimated at $3.2 million. The pharmacy has been under new ownership since February 2009. The settlement also prohibits RG Pharmacy and Katz from participating in any government health care program for at least seven years.

DSS officials contend that the Manchester Pharmacy, formerly known as The Medicine Shoppe, and owner Roy D. Katz defrauded the state of more than $3.2 million over more than six years by breaking 30-day prescriptions down into seven-day units and charging a separate dispensing fee for each.
The dispensing fee is currently $3.15 per prescription. Elkin's testimony came at an administrative hearing before a DSS hearing officer at the department's headquarters on Sigourney Street in Hartford. Department officials are seeking to have Katz and his business, officially known as R.G. Pharmacy Inc., barred for a decade from providing goods or services under the Medicaid healthcare program for the poor or any other program run by DSS. Federal authorities also have expressed interest in the issue. An FBI special agent has attended two days of the hearing, although he didn't attend Tuesday. Katz and his lawyers have maintained throughout the controversy that he had authorization from doctors and other prescribers to dispense the seven-day prescriptions through the pharmacy's so-called "med box" program.
