WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower says, "We are urging a bookkeeper, a Medicare billing coder or a physician to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof their employer or a healthcare company is involved in a million-dollar scheme to overbill or defraud Medicare. We are talking about healthcare companies in almost every state that are involved in this type of activity and they rarely get caught. The reward potential for this type of information can be huge as we would like to discuss." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
As an example of what the Corporate Whistleblower is talking about in July of 2016 the Department of Justice announced a $18-million-dollar settlement to resolve allegations a company providing hospice services claimed Medicare reimbursement for hospice care for patients-who were not eligible for such care because they were not terminally ill. In a statement the DOJ said, "Only Medicare patients who have a life expectancy of six months or less are considered terminally ill and eligible for the Medicare hospice benefit."
In this instance whistleblower's reward is expected to be in the millions of dollars. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
According to the Corporate Whistleblower, "We want to hear from an employee of hospice company that is billing Medicare for hospice/end of life services for people not eligible, we want to talk to ER doctors whose hospital is forcing them to admit Medicare patients so a hospital can run tests, or charge for an unneeded stay in the hospital, we also want to talk to nursing home managers whose facility is short staffed-but management is forcing them to bill Medicare as if they are fully staffed, etc.
"If your employer is overbilling Medicare each month for tens of thousands of dollars for unnecessary services or for services never rendered the rewards can be huge as we would like to explain anytime to a potential whistleblower who possesses this type of information if they would call us at 866-714-6466. Why knowingly sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever cashing it in?" http://CorporateWhistleBlower.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower: 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 about Medicare or Medicaid overbilling or fraud. 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."
