Nuclear stress tests occur in two parts, but are considered one service
(PRWEB) September 04, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are extremely interested in talking to a healthcare professional, who specializes in cardiology, and nuclear stress testing, if they have proof of Medicare fraud, or over billing, and they can call us anytime at 866-714-6466. Rewards for those who have proof of this type of wrongdoing can be substantial, because these types of medical proceedures can be very expensive. If the wrongdoing includes fraud, or over billing, the potential for rewards can be in the millions of dollars."
On July 13th 2013, the Justice Department anounced a $17 million dollar judgement,that was related to a nuclear cardiologist, who was allegedly submitting fraudulent Medicare. In this instance, the Department of Justice alleged a Washington, DC physician defrauded the government, by billing Medicare twice for nuclear stress tests. According to the Justice Department's press release related to this case, "Nuclear stress tests occur in two parts, but are considered one service." The medical doctor in question allegedly billed these services as two separate procedures.
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 the Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466. This especially includes healthcare professionals, accountants, medical doctors, or nurses.
