"In these types of medically unnecessary billing cases we may be able to increase the reward potential by building out the case-by proving the wrongdoing was much more widespread."
WASHINGTON, DC, January 09, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We are urging medical doctors, physician assistants or registered nurses to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof-a healthcare company is gouging Medicare or Medicaid with bills for medically unnecessary treatments. It is worth your time to talk to us if you have this type of information. Recently a whistleblower received $300,000 for this type of information. In these types of medically unnecessary billing cases we may be able to increase the reward potential by building out the case-by proving the wrongdoing was more widespread." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
On June 5th, 2018 the Justice Department announced a post-acute healthcare management firm agreed to pay more than $1.7 million to resolve False Claims Act allegations they caused other hospitals to submit, claims for reimbursement from Medicare for services that were not medically reasonable or necessary. The Justice Department alleged the healthcare management firm's individual patients progress was not being adequately tracked or documented, the patients received an inappropriate level of treatment, and the therapy provided was primarily recreational or diversional, and was not considered therapeutic. A former employee received $300,000 for exposing these practices.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from following types of healthcare workers about possible rewards if they have proof of the following types of information:
* A hospital ER doctor who can prove their hospital-employer is forcing ER staff to admit Medicare patients for needless tests or procedures when outpatient treatment should have been called for. The Corporate Whistleblower Center believes this is a major problem in every state-nationwide.
* A medical practice group that is routinely ordering unnecessary expensive medical procedures such as an expensive MRI or CT scan on their Medicare patients.
* A medical practice group in cahoots with a local hospital is unnecessarily admitting Medicare patients to the hospital for unwarranted medical procedures and getting a kickback-commission from the hospital for doing so.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are incredibly serious about healthcare workers getting rewarded if they have substantial proof their employer is involved in significant Medicare, or Medicaid overbilling. If you possess this type of information, please give us a call at 866-714-6466 and let's have a confidential conversation about the potential value of your information. Why sit on a potentially huge winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
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 come clean stark on anti-kickback laws or overbilling Medicare. 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."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is the premier advocate for whistleblowers in the United States. Unlike any group in the US, they can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging their information and building it out so the reward potential increases.
