The Corporate Whistleblower Center believes there is an enormous opportunity for physicians to get what could be very substantial reward if they possess well documented proof a medical device, or pharmaceutical company is paying off medical doctors as a way to get their business. There was a recent example of this type of practice that should result in a significant wistleblower reward. For more information medical doctors are urged to contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466, if they have proof of a medical device, or a drug company paying of medical doctors as a way to get their business.
In October of 2014 the United States Department of Justice announced, "EBI LLC, doing business as Biomet Spine and Bone Healing Technologies and Biomet Inc. have agreed to pay $6.07 million to resolve allegations that EBI violated the False Claims Act by paying kickbacks to induce use of its bone growth stimulators and billing federal health care programs for refurbished stimulators.
"The United States alleged that, from 2001 to 2008, EBI paid staff at doctors offices to influence doctors to order its bone growth stimulators. These payments were allegedly provided pursuant to personal service agreements with staff members. The United States concluded that these payments violated the Anti-Kickback Act and resulted in false billings to various federal health care programs, including Medicare. The settlement also resolves EBI’s disclosure that it received federal reimbursements for bone growth stimulators that had been refurbished."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "While the DOJ has yet to announce the whistleblower's reward we expect it to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more. If you are a medical doctor, and a medical device company, or pharmaceutical company has attempted to bribe you, or your staff as a way to get your business please call us at 866-714-6466.

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. 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 find the right law firms, to assist in advancing your information.”
