WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center is now urging Physicians nationwide to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if they possess proof any imaginable type of healthcare company is paying kickbacks for referrals from medical doctors. Recently the Department of Justice announced a $29.6-million-dollar settlement involving two medical practice groups and a hospital system involved in a referral kickback scheme. The allegations revolved around kickbacks for patient referrals. In this instance the scheme involved a hospital system admitting patients rather than seeing them on an outpatient basis. In this instance the whistleblowers (two medical doctors) will receive $6.2 million dollars for their information. http://Illinois.CorporateWhistleblower.Com
According to the Department of Justice, "On average, Medicare pays at least three times as much for an inpatient admission as it does for outpatient care."
The Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center is inviting a medical doctor or healthcare professional to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if they possess proof the following type of company is bribing medical doctors for referrals, purchases or admissions:
* A nursing home or skilled nursing facility bribing physicians for admissions
* A hospital bribing medical doctors for patient referrals for radiology or cardiac catheterizations
* A pharmaceutical company bribing physicians to over prescribe medications
* A hospice provider paying referrals to medical doctors-even if the patient is not dying
* A dialysis center bribing-physicians for referring new patients
* An Imaging Center bribing medical doctors for patients who may not need expensive imaging services such as an MRI or CT scan.
* An in-home healthcare provider that is bribing physicians to recommend their services.
* A blood testing company paying off medical doctors to prescribe medically unnecessary-expensive blood tests.
The Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are positive healthcare companies are paying kickbacks to some physicians in every state and the potential rewards can be significant provided the whistleblower has proof or an eyewitness account of what happened or is happening on an ongoing basis. If you possess this type of proof, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a conversation about the potential value of your information. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?" http://Illinois.CorporateWhistleblower.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Illinois 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/employer or individual to come clean about significant fraud involving paying mandated Davis Bacon wages on federal jobs, Medicare fraud, anti-kickback Stark violations, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Illinois based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”
Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation.
