Corporate Whistleblower Center Urges Nursing Home Insiders to Call Them about Whistleblower Rewards if They Have Proof Their Facility Is Illegally Prescribing Drugs

The Corporate Whistleblower Center is encouraging nursing home insiders to contact them if they have proof a nursing home is illegally prescribing controlled medications without the use of a physician and billing Medicare for the fraudulent prescriptions. This type of fraud not only puts patients at risk, it also abuses taxpayer funds, and is in violation of the False Claims Act. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

We would like to speak with anyone with proof of a nursing home or pharmacy is illegally writing or dispensing prescriptions

(PRWEB) October 31, 2013

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Only a physician, or in most states a nurse practitioner, can prescribe controlled medications. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, especially in nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and rehab centers. We would like to speak with anyone with proof of a nursing home or pharmacy is illegally writing or dispensing prescriptions. Rewards for this type of information can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

This is illustrated in a recent case involving the United States government and PharMerica. According to a press release from the Department of Justice, allegedly PharMerica routinely dispensed controlled substances in non-emergency situations without a written prescription from a physician. The suit alleges that PharMerica then knowingly submitted false claims to Medicare for reimbursement.

The lawsuit was filed by a former PharMerica employee under the Whistleblower provision of the False Claims Act. According to provisions of the Act, whistleblowers can sue their employers on behalf of the government, and then receive a portion of the settlement as a reward.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center, which works closely with insiders from nursing homes, rehab centers, and skilled nursing facilities, says, "If a whistleblower at a nursing home, rehab center, or a skilled nursing facility has this type of information and would like to learn more about federal whistleblower reward programs, please call us at 866-714-6466. Provided we are satisfied and your information is well-documented we will get you to the nation's leading whistleblower attorneys.” All calls and information are kept confidential. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.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 federal 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 government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. 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, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.

Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a government contractor defrauding the federal government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleBlowerCenter.Com
