WASHINGTON, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging hospitalists or ER doctors to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their hospital is gouging Medicare with up-coded billing or unnecessary medical procedures. As we would like explain anytime, the whistleblower rewards for this type of information can be substantial. Recently a medical doctor with this exact type of information received an $11.4-million-dollar reward." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
In February of 2017, the US Department of Justice announced a $60 million settlement with a major U.S. hospital service provider. The government alleged the hospital service provider knowingly and systematically encouraged false billings by its hospitalists, who are medical professionals whose primary focus is the medical care of hospitalized patients. Specifically, the government alleged that the healthcare company encouraged its hospitalists to bill for a higher level of service than actually provided. This company's scheme to improperly maximize billings allegedly included corporate pressure on hospitalists and employee medical doctors with lower billing levels to "catch up" to their peers.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We have over a decade of working with medical doctors who saw something wrong and they stepped forward. Our number one goal is seeing to it that a whistleblower with proof Medicare or the federal government is being ripped off gets rewarded - provided the amount in question exceeds a million dollars. As we would like to discuss anytime at 866-714-6466, we are convinced there are numerous potential whistleblowers in every state who are probably sitting on a winning lotto ticket with respect to a potential whistleblower reward. Please don't sit on a potentially 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, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska.
