WASHINGTON, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging an honest cardiologist in any state to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they possess proof a hospital or a rouge cardiologist is doing heart caths on Medicare patients for absolutely no necessary medical reason. We were involved in perhaps one of the largest cardiac catheterization scams in US history. The wrongdoing occurred in the US Southeast. To advance our investigation we placed an ad in a local newspaper inviting people who thought they were a victim of a rouge cardiologist to show up at a local Starbucks on a Saturday and this is not an embellishment----the line was at times around the block-almost all day long.
"In our opinion the cardiologist in this specific instance should have been indicted criminally as should the hospital executives that allowed him to continue practicing. Unfortunately, in this instance the whistleblower did not have the best possible legal representation. The good news we have not given up and we think the whistleblower and the victims should be compensated.
"If you are an ethical cardiologist and you have proof a rouge cardiology group along with a complicit hospital is gouging Medicare with unnecessary cardiac procedures please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let's talk about the federal whistleblower reward program with respect to Medicare. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In 2016 the Department of Justice announced a multi-million-dollar settlement involving a cardiologist whose medical group was allegedly involved in cardiovascular services that were not medically necessary. In this instance the whistleblowers received a whistleblower reward of $1,300,000.
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."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska.
