WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Indiana Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging a physical therapist, a healthcare manager or medical doctor in Indiana to call them at 866-714-6466 if they have proof a healthcare company is involved in a scheme to gouge Medicare, Medicaid or TRICARE with unauthorized high volume physical therapy that was not being supervised by a physician.
According to the group, "We believe one of the easiest ways to rip off Medicare is with unsupervised or unauthorized physical therapy on the part of a healthcare company, and we are confident there are bad actors in every state involved in high volume overbilling of Medicare using PT as the excuse. Recently a whistleblower received $225,000 for this exact type of information."
In January 2018 the Department of Justice announced a health care system based in Southern California agreed to pay $1.5 million to resolve allegations that it violated the False Claims Act by billing Medicare and TRICARE for physical therapy services provided by therapists without billing privileges and without the appropriate supervision by a physician. The whistleblower reward for this wrongdoing was $225,000 as mentioned.
Aside from therapists or physicians with proof a healthcare company is gouging Medicare with unsupervised or unauthorized physical therapy the Indiana Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from the following types of people:
* A nursing home employee who can prove their employer is billing Medicare as if the facility is fully staffed when the opposite is true—the facility is constantly short staffed and patients are at risk.
* An employee at a rehab center, a skilled nursing facility, a dialysis center, a company providing hospice services, an imaging center, a blood testing company, or a hospital ER physician who can prove their Indiana based employer is billing Medicare/Medicaid for services never rendered or for unnecessary medical procedures.
The Indiana Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are a Medical Doctor or any type of healthcare worker in Indiana and you have significant proof a healthcare provider is gouging Medicare or Medicaid with bills for services that never happened or for medical services that should have never taken place please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 so we can discuss the value of the potential whistleblower reward. Why sit on what could be a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?”
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Indiana Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Indiana 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 Indiana 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.
