"If you know something say something and if the information is substantial enough you will get rewarded. Medicare pays very generously for healthcare procedures and paying for patients has been around for a long time. There is one slight problem---paying referral fees to physicians is illegal" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
On March 29th, 2018 the Department of Justice announced an $11.5 million dollar-settlement with a healthcare firm that operates radiation therapy centers throughout the United States As part of the settlement the company agreed that it knowingly submitted claims to the Medicare program that violated the Anti‑Kickback Statute. In this instance the whistleblower will receive up to $1.725 million.
The types of healthcare providers that are frequently involved in Stark Anti-Kickback Violations include:
* Physician Owned Medical Practice Groups
* Pharmaceutical Companies
* Blood Testing Labs
* Radiology Clinics
* Dialysis Centers
* Skilled Nursing Facilities/Rehab Centers
The Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging a healthcare manager who has proof a medical practice group is violating Stark Anti-Kickback Laws to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. Frequently whistleblower rewards involving healthcare companies and kickbacks to medical doctors involve million-dollar plus rewards. We think healthcare whistleblowers are heroes and we want them to get compensated. If you have proof of significant kickback schemes involving Medicare or Medicaid-why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?

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 Stark Anti-Kickback Laws. 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."
