The Corporate Whistleblower Center says,“Kickbacks involving Medicare or other federal funds are illegal under the False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Statute. Stepping forward is not only the right thing to do, but the rewards for whistleblowers can be astronomical. Pharmaceutical company representatives, managers, or physicians really can cash in if they have well documented proof of large companies bribing medical doctors as an inducement to sell more drugs, as we would like to explain if they call us at 866-714-6466.”
Under the False Claims Act, whistleblowers receive a portion of the settlement as a reward for the information they provide. The larger the settlement, the more lucrative the reward. For example, according to the Department of Justice, pharmaceutical giant C.R. Bard recently agreed to pay $48.26 million to settle claims that it allegedly violated the Anti-Kickback Statute by providing illegal compensation to customers and physicians to entice them to purchase Bard’s brachytherapy seeds. The alleged kickbacks included grants, guaranteed rebates, marketing assistance, and free medical equipment.
In this case, the whistleblower was a former manager of Bard. She will receive $10,134,600 as a reward for coming forward.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Pharmaceutical company representatives, managers, or physicians who have well documented proof of large drug companies bribing medical doctors as an inducement to sell more drugs stand to collect potentially millions of dollars in reward money. We would like to explain this in more detail to any pharma rep, pharma manager, or medical doctor who possesses documented proof of a large scale kickback program being operated by a pharmaceutical company. Your information will be kept confidential."
