The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging a LPN, RN or CNA with proof a nursing home is billing Medicaid as if the facility is fully staffed with caregivers-when if fact the facility is short-staffed to call us about possible rewards.”
WASHINGTON, DC, April 10, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Corporate Whistleblower Center is appealing to a LPN, RN or a CNA employed at a nursing home anywhere in the United States to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is billing Medicare/Medicaid as if the facility is fully staffed with care givers when in reality the nursing home is constantly so short on caregiver staff patients are prematurely dying. Nursing homes involved in short staffing frequently also bill Medicare/Medicaid for medical procedures that never took place. The rewards for this type of information can be substantial. 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 always interested in talking to healthcare professionals with the following type of information:
* A nursing home, skilled nursing facility or acute care facility is billing Medicare/Medicaid as if they are fully staffed with caregivers when in fact-they are grossly understaffed.
* A hospice provider is billing Medicare for end of life medical treatment for people who are not dying.
* Drug companies bribing medical doctors so the physician will over prescribe pharmaceutical products.
* A hospital is admitting Medicare patients through their ER for expensive medical testing rather than scheduling the person for much more affordable outpatient treatment.
* A blood testing company or imaging center is paying off physicians for unwarranted expensive medical testing.
According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, “We want a healthcare worker with this type of information to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 provided their information about the wrongdoing is well documented and easy to see. 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.
