The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging physicians, or hospital executives to call them at 866-714-6466 if they possess well documented proof a cardiology group is executing unnecessary, or uncalled for medical procedures such as; unneeded heart stents, bypass surgeries, or other heart procedures as a way to overbill Medicare. The rewards for this type of information can be in the millions of dollars. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
According to a January 2014 US Department of Justice press release, the government alleged that doctors working at a hospital performed numerous invasive cardiac procedures; including coronary stents, pacemakers, coronary artery bypass graft surgeries, and diagnostic catheterizations. These procedures allegedly were performed on Medicare and Medicaid patients who did not need them, and the hospital was allegedly aware of these unnecessary procedures. Allegedly, these doctors were affiliated with a physician group that supposedly entered into an exclusive arrangement with the hospital in 2008 to provide cardiology services to the hospital’s patients. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "In this instance, the whistleblowers will receive a total of $2.46 million of the $16.5 million settlement with the hospital. We think rouge cardiology groups performing unnecessary/unwarranted heart procedures is a huge national problem, and we are convinced these types of uncalled for practices not only prematurely kill patients, they also fleece Medicare. If you have specific information, and well documented proof of this type of activity at a hospital, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain federal whistleblower programs to you." 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.”
