WASHINGTON, Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower says, "We are urging almost any type of physician especially surgeons, primary care or ER doctors to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof a hospital or healthcare company is involved with a kickback scheme providing illegal incentives for doctors to admit patients for care or procedures that are not needed. The Stark Laws were intended to combat illegal referral fees to medical doctors and the rewards for this type of activity can be huge. In a recent instance a medical doctor received $18 million dollars for this exact type of information." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In October-2016 the Department of Justice announced that it was awarded a $237 million judgment against a Healthcare System for their illegal billing of the Medicare program for services referred by physicians with whom the hospital had improper financial relationships.
The government argued in this case that a hospital company fearing that it could lose lucrative outpatient procedure referrals to a new freestanding surgery center allegedly contracted with 19 specialist physicians that required the physicians to refer their outpatient procedures to the hospital and, in exchange, paid the medical doctors compensation that far exceeded fair market value and included part of the money the hospital received from Medicare for the referred procedures.
The Corporate Whistleblower is urging medical doctors to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if they strongly suspect a hospital, healthcare company a medical device company or a pharmaceutical company is deeply involved in Stark Law violations involving referral fees to medical doctors. The group is offering to assist a physician or healthcare manager in this position build a team of witnesses to be able to qualify for a federal reward. This is a revolutionary approach to whistleblowing and the federal whistleblower reward program. http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower: Do not go to the government first if you want to become a 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 either. Any type of public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy the prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a healthcare company or individual to come clean on kickbacks or Stark violations. 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."
