hospitals over billing the Medicare by fraudulently admitting patients as inpatient when they don't qualify for, or need that level of care is a blatant abuse of the Medicare system
(PRWEB) September 24, 2013
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "According to a June 21st, 2013 press release from the Department of Justice, a New Jersey hospital recently paid the US Government $8,999,999 to settle allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by overbilling Medicare. The suit alleges that Overlook Hospital in New Jersey over billed Medicare for patients who were treated on an inpatient basis when they should have been treated on an outpatient basis. When patients are admitted as inpatients, the hospitals’ reimbursement rates increase dramatically."
The Justice Department press release indicated this alleged wrongdoing was brought to light by former employees of the hospital who kept records of the hospital's inpatient admissions practices between 2002 and 2009. The whistleblowers will received a share of the nearly $9 million dollar settlement. 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.”
