WASHINGTON , DC, USA, June 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the New Jersey Corporate Whistleblower Center. "We are urging a medical doctor, healthcare manager or a medical practice group manager to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have information about a scheme to overbill Medicare or Medicaid. Overbilling Medicare is at a minimum a $60 billion dollar a year enterprise and the government does a very poor job of watching how tax dollars are spent. However, the government has an established system where a whistleblower can get financially rewarded if they provide information about substantial Medicare fraud.
"We are especially focused on healthcare companies bribing or paying commissions to medical doctors for referrals because these can in some instances produce significant rewards for the whistleblower. In one recent example a whistleblower received $1.725 million dollars for their information related to an imaging company bribing physicians for referrals." http://NewJersey.CorporateWhistleblower.Com
On March 29, 2018, the Department of Justice announced a company that operates radiation therapy centers throughout the United States agreed to pay the government $11.5 million dollars to settle a lawsuit alleging that it knowingly submitted claims to the Medicare program that violated the Anti‑Kickback Statute. The government alleged the company offering radiation therapy to cancer patients violated the Anti-Kickback Statute and the False Claims Act by targeting physicians who were able to refer patients to their cancer treatment centers. and paid those physicians a share of its profits pursuant to investment arrangements that were set up to allow physicians to profit from their referrals. As mentioned the whistleblower in this instance will receive $1.725 million for their information.
According to the New Jersey Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If a medical doctor or healthcare manager has proof of a healthcare company bribing physicians for referrals or admissions we are urging them to call us anytime at 866-714-6466.

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the New Jersey Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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 United States 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.
