earlier this year the United States Department of Justice announced a whistleblower award of $122,500 to a whistleblower for alleged misconduct in Virginia at a skilled nursing facility
(PRWEB) September 03, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Medicare fraud at a skilled nursing facility comes in a variety of forms. We are urging potential skilled nursing facility whistleblowes to look for the most common types of Medicare fraud, which include billing for unnecessary procedures, patient involved scams in which patients admit to receiving procedures that never occurred, and using inflated billing codes, for fraudulent and unnecessary medical procedures. A skilled nursing facility employee, who has proof of significant Medicare fraud or over billing can contact us at 866-714-6466, so we can carefully explain whistleblower programs to them."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is very serious when they mention significant whistleblower rewards for insiders at a skilled nursing facility, with proof of alleged Medicare fraud, or over billing. As an example, earlier this year the United States Department of Justice announced a whistleblower award of $122,500 to a whistleblower for alleged misconduct in Virginia at a skilled nursing facility. For attribution purposes the Corporate Whistleblower Center has provided a link to the United States Department of Justice's press release related to this specific reward, and settlement. http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2013/July/13-civ-864.html
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistle Blower 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.
- Do not try to force a government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrong doing. 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. We urge you to come to us and tell us what type of information you have. If we think it’s sufficient, we will help find the right law firms that can assist you in advancing your information."
Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a private contractor is fleecing the federal government out of millions of dollars is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466. This especially includes healthcare professionals, medical doctors, or nurses. Potential whistleblowers can also contact the group via their web site. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
