"We are going after short-staffed healthcare facilities billing Medicare or Medicaid as if they are fully staffed in every state."
WASHINGTON, DC, October 24, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We are going after nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities and acute care facilities nationwide if they are billing Medicare or Medicaid as if they are fully staffed with caregivers-when in fact they are short staffed. We are going after short-staffed healthcare facilities billing Medicare or Medicaid as if they are fully staffed in every state. As we would like to discuss anytime at 866-714-6466 the rewards for this type of information can be significant.
"Frequently short staffed nursing homes or skilled nursing homes also bill Medicare or Medicaid for procedures that never happened. In one recent example two whistleblowers at a skilled nursing facility will receive $2 million dollars for medical treatments that were not necessary." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In July 2018 the Department of Justice announced a group of healthcare companies agreed to pay a $10 million dollar fine for submitting false claims to Medicare for medically unnecessary rehabilitation therapy services. The United States alleged that between October 2009 and December 2013, a group of healthcare companies and nine skilled nursing facilities' corporate policies and practices encouraged the provision of medically unreasonable and unnecessary therapy without regard for patients' individual clinical needs. In this instance the whistleblowers will receive a $2 million reward.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging an employee of a skilled nursing facility, nursing home or acute care facility to call them anytime if they have proof of the following at their place of employment:

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It's a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company or individual to clean about overbilling Medicare or Medicaid. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it's sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information for a reward."
