(PRWEB) July 10, 2014
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "In May 2014, we issued a press release about a whistleblower receiving a $400,000 reward for information related to a physical therapy clinic, and the facilities involvement in an alleged scheme to defraud Medicare. It was our most viewed press release ever, and we continue to receive calls concerning this case. If you work for a physical therapy clinic, imaging center, hospice service provider, dialysis facility, or any type of healthcare provider that is involved in significant Medicare fraud, or overbilling, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain in detail federal whistleblower reward programs to you. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
In April 2014, the Justice Department announced two companies that operate physical therapy clinics in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland, along with three individuals associated with the businesses, have agreed to pay the United States $2.78 million to settle allegations that the firms’ billings to Medicare and the TRICARE health care program violated the False Claims Act.
The settlement resolves allegations that, between January 2007 and August 2012, the companies submitted claims which falsely represented that the physical therapy services being billed were either rendered or directly supervised by the physical therapist identified on the claims by his or her National Provider Identifier (NPI) number. In reality, the physical therapist identified on the claim had no involvement whatsoever in the services rendered. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
In this case, the whistleblowers will receive more than $400,000 as their reward.
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. Its 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 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. We say, come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think its sufficient, we will help you find the right law firms, to assist in advancing your information.”
The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize they want to talk to healthcare whistleblowers with proof of significant Medicare fraud in any state, including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
Any type of insider, or employee, who possesses significant proof of their employer, or a government contractor fleecing the federal government is encouraged to contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleBlowerCenter.Com
