Port Chester pharmacist pleads guilty to Medicaid fraud

State investigators say a pharmacist has admitted to bilking the state Medicaid system and the Village of Port Chester out of more than $600,000 during a seven-year period.

New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer says John Postiglione submitted thousands of false reimbursements to the Medicaid program and billed for medications which medical providers say they never prescribed.

Postiglione has been ordered to repay the state Medicaid program more than $450,000 and repay the Village of Port Chester more than $200,000. He is scheduled to be sentenced on October 14.
