Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges Physical Therapists Nationwide To Call About Rewards If Their Hospital or Rehab Center Employer Is Forcing Unneeded PT-So Medicare Gets Stuck with a Big Bill
Published: Jul 11, 2018
WASHINGTON, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "We are urging a physical therapist who is employed by a hospital, skilled nursing facility, or a rehab center that is forcing patients to have extra PT, or medically unnecessary physical therapy as another way to rip off Medicare-Medicaid to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. If the Medicare and Medicaid overbilling is significant enough there could be a substantial reward in your future as we would like to discuss. Recently two whistleblowers received several million dollars for this exact type of information." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In June 2018 the Department of Justice announced a healthcare that owns and operates approximately 115 skilled nursing facilities agreed to pay $30 million dollars to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by knowingly submitting false claims to Medicare for rehabilitation therapy services that were not reasonable, necessary and skilled and pressuring therapists and patients to complete the planned minutes of therapy even when patients were sick or declined to participate in therapy. For attribution please refer to the Department of Justice press release that discusses this matter: https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/signature-healthcare-pay-more-30-million-resolve-false-claims-act-allegations-related.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are certain there are healthcare workers in every state that could make a ton of money because they blew the whistle on their employer for ripping off Medicare-Medicaid for medically unnecessary medical treatments or procedures. The wrongdoing has to be at least a million-dollars-but we can go back at least four years so that should not be as difficult as it might sound. If you possess this type of information, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can discuss the reward potential of your information. Please don't sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
Other types of healthcare whistleblowers the Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from include:
- ER doctors who are admitting patients based on hospital management's orders rather than having the patient treated on an outpatient basis. (Outpatient costs Medicare about one third less than a hospital admission)
- Nursing home managers or their assistants who can prove their employer is billing Medicare-Medicaid as if the facility is fully staffed when the nursing home is short staffed, and patients are dying because of it.
- Drug-Alcohol Rehab Center staff who can prove the facility is providing no meaningful treatment to drug addicts or alcoholics. The business model for the facility is to sign in as many drug addicts or alcoholics as possible provide no treatment and then discharge the patient as soon as the Medicaid funding stops-or runs out.
- Drug companies or any type of healthcare company bribing medical doctors to prescribe drugs or medical services, treatments, equipment, or therapy that is not medically necessary.
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 clean about 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 for a reward."
