WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says "We are urging a hospital employed medical doctor, or registered nurse in Michigan or any other state to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is forcing them to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients to the hospital when more affordable outpatient care should have been provided. In a recent example a hospital employee received $3.3 million dollars for this type of information. http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In a recent example the Department of Justice announced a company that operates acute care hospitals agreed to pay $18 million to settle allegations that 12 of its hospitals knowingly submitted false claims to Medicare by admitting patients who could have been treated on a less costly outpatient basis. As mentioned the whistleblower in this instance received $3.3 million dollars for their information.
The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center is especially interested in hearing from healthcare managers, medical doctors or registered nurses if they have specific proof of the following:
* A hospital is paying commissions to ER doctors to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients rather than providing treatment on an outpatient basis.
* A drug or alcohol treatment center in Michigan is simply warehousing drug addicts or alcoholics and charging Medicaid as if they are treating the patient/addict. As soon as the Medicaid funding runs out the patient is discharged.
* A hospice provider that is signing up homeless people or drug addicts who are not dying; and then billing Medicare for services never provided or for unnecessary medical procedures.
* A pharmaceutical representative bribing medical doctors to over-prescribe their drug products.
* A nursing home or skilled nursing facility billing Medicare for unnecessary extremely expensive medical tests involving ambulatory, speech, and or cognitive abilities.
* An in-home healthcare company that is grossly overbilling Medicare for hours never worked.
The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are a healthcare manager, a physician or registered nurse and you have proof a company is engaged in a multi-million-dollar scheme to overbill Medicare or Medicaid please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. Please do not sit on a potentially multi-million dollar winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth. http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleblower.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Michigan 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 Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Michigan 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.
