WASHINGTON, Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging a medical doctor, a nurse or a manager at a nursing home, skilled nursing facility, a rehab center, a dialysis center or a company providing hospice services to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they can prove their employer is involved in significant Medicare overbilling. One of our top targets are healthcare companies that are gouging Medicare with unnecessary medical procedures, or medical treatments that never took place. Recently a small group of whistleblowers with this exact type of information received a $3.6-million-dollar reward." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
To illustrate what the Corporate Whistleblower Center is talking about in July 2017 the Department of Justice announced a Midwest based healthcare company has agreed to pay approximately $19.5 million to resolve allegations pertaining to the submission of false claims for medically unnecessary rehabilitation therapy and hospice services to Medicare, the Department of Justice announced today.
The settlement resolves allegations that, from January 2008 through December 2012 the healthcare company submitted bills to Medicare for medically unnecessary rehabilitation therapy services at 18 skilled nursing facilities. The government contended that the therapy services were provided at excessive levels to increase Medicare reimbursement for those services.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We are convinced there probably a more than a few people in every state that could be millionaires based on their inside information about Medicare fraud and healthcare companies ripping off the federal government. If you possess this type of information please call us at 866-714-6466. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could 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 wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Mass, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska.
