by Brown LLC Whistleblower Law Firm,Class Actions and Injury La

Healthcare fraud whistleblowers are important for any country’s healthcare system and current, plus future patients. Whistleblower’s insider information, or what’s otherwise called ‘tip off’ helps prompt healthcare misconduct investigations under qui tam lawsuit that could eventually prevent healthcare fraud. Qui tam lawsuits are designed to return millions and billions of dollars to the state/federal government that, if not, would have vanished. Whistleblowers also play major roles in preventing detrimental practices that could endanger the lives or health of Medicare and Medicaid patients, including senior citizens, children, nursing home residents, dialysis patients, cancer patients, and many others. Moreover, qui tam lawsuits could prevent Medicare and Medicaid misconduct that filch money from various Medicare and Medicaid programs. By far, over 10,000 qui tam lawsuits have been filed bringing healthcare fraud to light. These cases of whistleblowing have helped the state/federal government recover several million that, if not, would have been disappeared. Billions more are recovered through criminal penalties by state/federal Medicaid programs as a result of whistleblower cases.

Whistleblowers who file qui tam lawsuits under the False Claims Act claiming Medicare and Medicaid fraud receive awards worth million under the whistleblower reward scheme. This law as well ensures whistleblower's job protection by offering recourse to those suffering job retaliation for their courageous action. Brown, LLC is the country’s one of top whistleblower law firms. For years, our healthcare fraud whistleblower attorneys have had unparalleled wins in Medicare and Medicaid whistleblower cases, both in qui tam cases and the total amount of money recovered.

Below are the most common types of Medicare and Medicaid fraud:

  • Medicare advantage risk-advantage fraud
  • Medical loss ratio fraud
  • Medical equipment and implants
  • Off-label marketing, kickbacks, and many other forms of fraud by the pharmaceutical companies
  • Upcoding and unbundling
  • Stark Law and Anti-Kickback violations
  • Lack of medical necessity
  • False certifications and information
  • Electronic health record fraud
  • Telemedicine fraud
  • Kickbacks through physician speaker programs

For millions of U.S. citizens are insured with state or federal government funds, Medicare and Medicaid are areas prone to fraud. Medicare and Medicaid profits pay for the care of people. Government staff as well have their medical treatments paid for with government funds. Fraudulent allegations involving state or federal government Medicare and Medicaid schemes cost citizens of the nation billions of dollars every year and push healthcare expenses to shoot up. The False Claims Act is the central tool in recognizing and prosecuting healthcare fraud cases for the government funds under several government indentures, including Medicare and Medicaid. When millions of dollars in Medicare and Medicaid fraud cases get exposed through whistleblowing under the False Claims Act, it is believed that billions of dollars in more healthcare fraud remains concealed.
