The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “The easiest way for a healthcare worker to get a whistleblower reward is to prove short-staffing at a nursing home or skilled nursing facility and we can help a whistleblower package their information.”
WASHINGTON, DC, December 05, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Corporate Whistleblower Center is appealing to a LPN, CNA or a nursing home manager anywhere in the United States to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if Medicare/Medicaid is being overbilled for insufficient staff levels to properly care for the nursing home’s or skilled nursing facility’s patients. This practice is called short-staffing and it happens in nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities nationwide. Frequently nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities involved in short staffing also bill Medicare or Medicaid for medical procedures that never took place. If you possess proof your employer-nursing home or skilled nursing facility is constantly short staffed involved–but billing Medicaid as if they are fully staffed–there can significant rewards for this type of information as the group would like to discuss- anytime.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
On November 16th, 2017 the Department of Justice announced a $1,250,000 settlement from the operator of a nursing home in Mississippi based nursing home for providing effectively worthless services to residents. The allegations included the nursing home managers failed to meet the nutritional needs of residents, failed to administer medications to residents as prescribed by their physicians, over-medicated residents, hired insufficient staff to care for them, and diverted Medicare and Medicaid funds to other entities affiliated with the operators and in doing so left the facility unable to pay for its basic operations, including food, heat, air conditioning, pest control, and cleaning. While the whistleblower reward has not yet been announced it is expected to be around $150,000.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center is inviting the following types of healthcare workers to call them anytime if they possess the following types of information:
* They work for a short-staffed nursing home or skilled nursing facility that is billing Medicare/Medicaid as if they are fully staffed.
* They work for a hospice provider that is billing Medicare for end of life medical treatment for people who are not dying.
* They work for a hospital that is admitting Medicare patients through their ER for expensive medical testing that should have never happened.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, “We want the potential whistleblowers who call us to understand their information could result in a significant whistleblower reward-provided it is well documented, and the wrongdoing is easy to prove. We can help you build out your information to make it more valuable. If a person in healthcare knows of a multi-million-dollar scheme to overbill Medicare or Medicaid please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 about what the reward potential could be. Please don’t sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever know 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 on overbilling of Medicare, or Medicaid. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you build out the information to increase the reward potential and we will find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information.
