If you are a medical doctor or an employee of a hospital and you possess this type of information, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a discussion about potential whistleblower rewards.
“Aside from medical doctors, we are also targeting hospital executives such as a director of business development or a hospital’s marketing staff person. Recently, a person like this received a million dollar plus reward for information about a hospital allegedly involved in a kickback scheme, as we would like to discuss.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
In December 2017, the Department of Justice announced a physician-owned hospital serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area has agreed to pay $7.5 million to resolve claims that it violated the False Claims Act by paying physicians kickbacks in the form of marketing services in exchange for surgical referrals.
The government alleged that, between 2009 and 2014, the hospital engaged in an illegal kickback scheme whereby it would pay for marketing and/or advertising services on physicians’ behalf and, in return, the physicians would refer their patients, including Medicare and TRICARE beneficiaries. The hospital allegedly paid for advertisements on behalf of the physicians in numerous local and regional publications. The hospital also allegedly paid for radio and television advertising, pay-per-click advertising campaigns, billboards, website upgrades, brochures, and business cards, as well as other forms of marketing to induce physicians to refer patients to the hospital for medical services. In this instance, the whistleblower will receive $1,125,000.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, “If you are a medical doctor, a hospital employee or a healthcare industry insider and you possess proof a hospital, a pharmaceutical company, a blood testing service, or any type of healthcare company is bribing physicians for increased use of their services, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 about possible whistleblower rewards. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been 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 stark on 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.”
The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state, including California, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, or Alaska. They are especially interested in hearing from medical doctors, hospital employees, medical practice managers or nurses who have information about kickback involving a medical doctor and any type of healthcare provider or company. http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
