We think there are enormous opportunities for in home healthcare, or managers at hospice companies to cash in on lucrative federal whistleblower rewards, if they possess well documented proof
(PRWEB) December 04, 2014
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We think there are enormous opportunities for in-home healthcare, or managers at hospice companies to cash in on lucrative federal whistleblower rewards, if they possess well documented proof the employer is overbilling Medicare, or Medicaid for medically unnecessary medical procedures, or for procedures that were never done. This type of information can lead to significant rewards as demonstrated by a recent federal settlement.
"All we ask is if you have proof of widespread Medicare, or Medicaid fraud that you call us at 866-714-6466, so we can carefully explain how the rewards process works, and the level of proof you will need to be successful. If we are satisfied with your level of proof we will instantly put you in contact with some of the nation's most successful whistleblower lawyers."
In November 2014 the Department of Justice announced, "CareAll Management, LLC, and its affiliated entities (collectively, “CareAll”) have agreed to pay $25 million, plus interest, to the United States and the State of Tennessee to resolve allegations that CareAll violated the False Claims Act (“FCA”) by submitting false and upcoded home healthcare billings to the Medicare and Medicaid programs.
"CareAll is based in Nashville, Tennessee and is one of Tennessee’s largest home health providers. This settlement resolves allegations that, between 2006 and 2013, CareAll improperly billed for services that were upcoded, not medically necessary, and allegedly were rendered to patients who were not homebound." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The whistleblower will receive over $3.9 million as their reward in this instance.
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.”
The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Washington, and Alaska.
