An Omaha-based company that processes drug benefits and claims said late Wednesday that it was under investigation by federal authorities.
Pharmaceutical Technologies Inc. said federal prosecutors in Texas were leading a probe of its business practices. The inquiry is “routine,” said Linda Lovgren, a PTI spokeswoman.
Federal authorities were at the company's Omaha headquarters Wednesday morning, she said.
“The quality of care or issues that could affect patient safety are not involved,” Lovgren said.
Self-insured employers and workers' compensation companies contract with PTI to approve and process prescription claims and manage benefits packages. — Emerson Clarridge
