Minister of Health says "This cat-and-mouse game is getting serious now. I am not kitten you."
The Minister of Health has announced new additional punishments for pharmacies that get audited and incorrect billings are discovered.
Health Minister Purric Hoskins says that the new clawback punishments will vary in severity depending on the dollar value of the inappropriate billings.
"We understand if the pharmacy has made an honest mistake in their billing. In fairly minor situations, our auditors will only rub catnip on your face as punishment."
But what are the other punishments?
For inappropriate billings under $500, staff will have to listen to an audio clip of cats hissing for 45 minutes.
For inappropriate billings between $500 and $2500, auditors will unleash half a dozen cats within the pharmacy that will spend all day constantly knock off products from shelves.
For inappropriate billings over $2500, all pharmacy staff will be placed in a "detention room" with 7 hungry feral cats unleashed upon them for 20 minutes.
The most severe punishment? For clawback over $100,000 the Ministry of Heath offers a scary one word description: "Tigers"
A complete list can be found on the Ministry of Health website.
Purric Hoskins also wanted pharmacies to know that there will be treats for those who do well.
"Pharmacies that are audited without any need for clawback will receive belly rubs for 8 minutes."
