kiting

[kī′ting]
Usage notes: (informal)
the improper and illegal practice of altering a drug prescription to indicate that more of a drug was prescribed than was actually ordered by the physician. Kiting may be done by a patient seeking greater quantities of drugs, especially opioids, than the physician prescribed, or by the pharmacist to increase reimbursement from a third party, such as an insurance company.
