(ConservativeHub.com) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned those taking ADHD, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, medication that following the recent arrest of two executives in a fraud scheme, there might be a disruption in them getting access to their medication. 

The CDC in its statement about the $100 million fraud scheme said that patients and clinics needed to be informed about the possibility of the medication distribution being affected. 

On Thursday, June 13, the Department of Justice (DOJ) revealed that the clinical president and the CEO of a California-passed digital health company had been arrested after they were accused of taking part in a scheme looking to distribute Adderall online. They also allegedly sent in false claims for reimbursement for the medication and are facing charges for obstructing justice. 

In its advisory, the CDC said that those who rely on the drug to treat ADHD and have been accessing their medication through telehealth options might find that there is a disruption to their treatment. Apart from this particular disruption, there is also an ongoing prescription drug shortage that includes ADHD drugs. 

Done Global Inc. CEO and founder Ruthia He, along with clinical president David Brody, were both arrested in California for their alleged participation in the scheme. In a statement by Attorney General Merrick Garland, it was alleged that these two defendants had taken advantage of the 2020 health emergency to develop a scheme that defrauded taxpayers through the provision of stimulants, including Adderal, for no “legitimate medical purpose.”
