Corporate Whistleblower Center Urges MDs or Employees with Any Proof of Hospice Providers' Involvement in a Scheme to Bill Medicare For People Not Dying to Call About Potential Rewards

Corporate Whistleblower Center
Posted on: 23 Nov 17

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "One of the easiest types of whistleblower rewards for an individual can involve a healthcare company billing Medicare for hospice services for people who are not dying. If you are a medical doctor or an employee of a firm that is providing hospice services and you can prove the healthcare company is billing Medicare for patients who are not dying - the rewards can be significant and we would like to talk to you anytime at 866-714-6466. Some of the highest Medicare payments relate to individuals receiving hospice care. If you possess proof of a healthcare company gouging Medicare with bills for end of life care for people who are not dying, please call us." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

On October 30th, 2017, the Department of Justice announced that one of the nation's largest hospice providers has agreed to pay $75 million to resolve a government lawsuit alleging that defendants violated the False Claims Act (FCA) by submitting false claims for hospice services to Medicare. The settlement resolves allegations that between 2002 and 2013 the hospice provider knowingly submitted or caused to be submitted false claims to Medicare for services to hospice patients who were not terminally ill. While the whistleblower reward has not yet been announced it is anticipated to be in the millions of dollars.

According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We believe there is probably a rouge hospice provider in most larger states. Because Medicare payments for hospice services are so significant we suppose some healthcare companies feel like it is worth the risk to recruit patients who are not dying. If you know about a hospice provider involved in these types of practices or tactics, please call us at 866-714-6466. The whistleblower rewards can be substantial for this type of information as we would like to discuss. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?" http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a healthcare whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the 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 company or individual to come clean about substantial overbilling of Medicare. 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, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska. They are especially interested in hearing from medical doctors, healthcare managers or nurses who have information about a hospice provider involved in a scheme to significantly over bill Medicare by billing for end of life care for people who are not dying. http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
