The Corporate Whistleblower Center is strongly encouraging accounting staff, or business managers at high volume medical practices, or any type of medical practice group to call them at 866-714-6466 if they have well documented proof the medical doctor, or medical practice group is involved in widespread Medicare fraud. This would involve; billing for procedures that never took place, inflating the amount of medical testing, or for procedures that were never performed. The Whistleblower Center emphasizes that well documented proof of these types of practices can lead to significant rewards for an insider, or accounting staff for a doctor, or for a medical practice group. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
A recent Justice Department press release details how in February 2014 a Florida-based physician had agreed to pay $750,000 to resolve allegations that allegedly he and his clinic billed Medicare for physician office visits that he did not perform.
The DOJ alleges that between 2006 and 2011 this Florida based doctor owned and operated a clinic, first in Sarasota, then in Bradenton. The Justice Department further alleges that, beginning in 2006, the physician billed Medicare for office visits at the highest levels possible, allegedly falsely claiming to have conducted comprehensive examinations of patients with complex problems. Allegedly, the patients also visited a pain clinic for scheduled procedures for which the doctor was paid. In addition to receiving payment for those procedures, allegedly the physician then billed, and was paid by Medicare for examinations that he did not perform.

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.”
