Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges Medical Doctors or Employees of Long-Term Care or Skilled Nursing Facilities to Call Them About Rewards if the Company is Paying Kickbacks for Admissions

Published: Oct 10, 2018

WASHINGTON, Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "Without going into details, we may soon be the most quoted source in the nation when it comes to illegal activity in long term care, nursing homes, and/or acute treatment centers cheating when it comes to taxpayer Medicare or Medicaid dollars. If you are a medical doctor or an employee of one of these types of facilities and you have proof on illegal kickbacks for admissions and or the facility constantly being short-staffed, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and allow us to discuss the reward potential of your information. Recently, a whistleblower received $2.3 million dollars for this exact type of information." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

On August 15th, 2018, the Justice Department announced an operator of long‑term care and rehabilitation hospitals across the country agreed to pay the United States, Texas, and Louisiana a total of $13,168,000 to resolve claims that they violated the False Claims Act. Allegedly, the company entered into numerous physician-services contracts on behalf of its hospitals.  Although the purpose of these contracts was ostensibly to retain physicians as medical directors or in other administrative or medical roles, the United States alleged that the company's payments under these contracts were intended to induce the physicians to refer patients to the healthcare company's facilities. 

The company allegedly violated the anti-kickback statutes further by entering into a "reciprocal referral relationship" with unaffiliated healthcare providers, such as home health companies.  In this instance, the whistleblower will receive $2,345,6700.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We have specifically targeted long-term care, acute care and nursing homes for being constantly short-staffed, and/or for Stark Act Anti-Kickback Laws for over a year. If you possess this type of information, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. We probably can add enormous value to your potential whistleblower claim. Please do not sit on a winning lotto ticket without know what it might be 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 major 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 on Stark Anti-Kickback Laws or overbilling 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." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
