The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging home healthcare managers, or executives in any city, or state, to call us anytime at 866-714-6466, if they possess proof a home healthcare company is overbilling Medicare out of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars, because the rewards can actually be in the millions of dollars. The whistleblower reward will be based on quality of information, evidence of any kind, and even witnesses testimony. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

As a recent example of home healthcare, as well as alleged Medicare fraud, according to a April 2014 Justice Department press release, Amedisys Inc. and its affiliates (Amedisys) have agreed to pay $150 million to the federal government to resolve allegations that they violated the False Claims Act by submitting false home healthcare billings to the Medicare program, recently announced by the Department of Justice.

Amedisys allegedly billed Medicare for nursing and therapy services that were medically unnecessary or provided to patients who were not homebound, and otherwise misrepresented patients’ conditions to increase its Medicare payments.  These billing violations were the supposed result of management pressure on nurses and therapists to provide care based on the financial benefits to Amedisys, rather than for the needs of patients.

In this instance, the whistleblowers will collectively split over $26 million.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We emphasize to healthcare managers, employees, or executives who possess proof of a company engaged in multi-million dollar Medicare fraud to contact us.  This fraud could be happening in your city.  Cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Detroit, Boston, Baltimore, Portland, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Saint Louis, Las Vegas, including smaller, rural areas have all had  multiple instances of Medicare fraud. Our agenda is helping whistleblowers package their information, and provided the information is sufficient, we almost immediately make certain they get to some of the nation’s top whistleblower attorneys.”

For more information, healthcare insiders with solid proof a company is overbilling, or defrauding Medicare, are urged to contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466.

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 federal 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 whistleblowers information could destroy any prospect for a reward.

  • Do not try to force a government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. 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, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Washington, and Alaska.
