Some people allegedly posed as doctors and wrote bogus prescriptions for drugs and psychotherapy therapy and then billed the government $12 million
(PRWEB) August 22, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are very focused on big ticket items related to Medicare fraud because the whistleblower rewards can be gigantic. We are dramatically expanding our Medicare fraud initiative in the hope of alerting more whistleblowers about reward potentials. However, the potential whistleblower must have solid proof and they must also abide by the rules, such as not going to the government first, and or not going to the news media."
What kind of big ticket Medicare fraud is the Corporate Whistleblower Center talking about? According to NBC News on May 14th, 2013, "Some people allegedly posed as doctors and wrote bogus prescriptions for drugs and psychotherapy therapy and then billed the government $12 million. Others allegedly were bribing Medicare patients for their ID numbers, then using those numbers to bill $20 million in home health care never performed, or not medically necessary."
This NBC News story was focused on a nationwide probe that involved the arrests of 400 individuals, and a press conference by Attorney General Eric Holder was held on May 14th, 2013. The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging healthcare professionals in all segments of the health care industry to call them at 866-714-6466 if they have proof of multi million dollar over billing, or fraud involving Medicare, because the types of rewards they envision really could be in the millions, and they will help the whistleblower get to the best possible attorneys to help them advance their claim.
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. Frequently government officials could care less, or they are incompetent."
- 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. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We know it is tempting to want to go to the news media with a huge story about multi million dollar Medicare fraud. However, public revelation will probably destroy a potential whistleblower from getting rewarded."
- 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 in the healthcare industry that any suggestion of exposure of wrongdoing might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. We say come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think its sufficient, we will help find the best possible whistleblower law firms to assist in advancing your information and a potential whistleblower claim and reward."
Any type of insider, or employee, who possesses significant proof of their employer, or a government contractor fleecing the federal government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
