WASHINGTON, Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging a hospital administrator, manager or a medical doctor employee to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they can prove their hospital employer is using creative accounting-in order to gouge Medicare or Medicaid. The most obvious type of Medicare or Medicaid fraud probably involves up-coding of Medicare or Medicaid bills. However, recently a hospital administrator received a $2,240,000 whistleblower reward for proving her employer was gaming a state's Medicaid system. In this instance-allegedly the parent company of the hospital where the whistleblower was employed developed a creative accounting scheme to get paid more money from a state run Medicaid program. Whistleblower rewards involving a hospital can frequently be in the millions of dollars as we would like to discuss." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center would also like to hear from:
- A nursing home manager who can prove their employer is overbilling Medicare or Medicaid for unnecessary medical treatments, or for medical treatments that never happened.
- A medical doctor who can prove a cardiology group is running a 'Cath Mill' where patients who do not need cardiac catheterization are getting them anyway.
- A hospice service that is signing up patients who are not dying.
- A radiology group that is intentionally performing redundant testing on Medicare patients.
- A nursing home, skilled nursing facility or a rehab center manager that can prove their employer is billing Medicare or Medicaid as if their facility is fully staffed when in reality-the healthcare facility is constantly short-staffed or under-staffed.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If you can prove a healthcare company is involved in any of these practices and the overbilling of Medicare or Medicaid exceeds a million dollars please call us at 866-714-6466 for a confidential conversation about whistleblower rewards. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been 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 on overbilling of 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."
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, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska.
