WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging a staff member or manager at a nursing home anywhere in the Illinois to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if Medicare is being overbilled for insufficient staff to care for their patients. This practice is called short-staffing and it happens in nursing homes in every state nationwide-including Illinois. Frequently nursing homes involved in short staffing also bill Medicare for medical procedures that never took place. If you have proof your employer-nursing home is significantly involved in these types of practices-there can significant rewards for this type of information as we would like to discuss- anytime." http://Illinois.CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.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. While the whistleblower reward has not yet been announced it is expected to be around $150,000.
The Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center intends to ramp up their efforts to assist legitimate healthcare whistleblower's package their information in the hopes of increasing their potential whistleblower reward-with a focus on the following types of practices:
* Short staffed nursing homes in Illinois that are billing Medicare as if they are fully staffed.
* Hospice providers in Illinois that are billing Medicare for end of life medical treatment for people who are not dying.
* Drug company representatives in Illinois that are bribing medical doctors with the intent—the physician will over prescribe pharmaceutical products.
* Hospitals in Illinois that are admitting Medicare patients through their ER for expensive medical testing that should have never happened.
* Blood testing companies or imaging centers in Illinois that are paying off physicians for unwarranted expensive medical tests.
According to the Illinois 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. If a MD or healthcare worker in Illinois knows of a multimillion dollar scheme to overbill Medicare please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 about what the reward potential could be for their information. Please don't sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever know what it might have been worth." http://Illinois.CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Illinois Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Illinois 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, multimillion dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Illinois 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.
