The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We want to talk with hospital ER doctors, physicians, or hospital nurse managers in any state who have well documented proof of a hospital doing unnecessary procedures such as MRIs, heart catheterizations, or admitting patients who should have been sent home with an aspirin, because the whistleblower rewards for this type of information can be in the hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars.

In a very recent example according to court records in May 2014, Baptist Health System Inc. (Baptist Health), the parent company for a network of affiliated hospitals and medical providers in the Jacksonville, Florida, area, has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle allegations that its subsidiaries violated the False Claims Act by submitting claims to federal health care programs for medically unnecessary services and drugs.

In this instance the settlement resolves allegations that, from September 2009 to October 2011, two neurologists in the Baptist Health network misdiagnosed patients with various neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, which allegedly caused Baptist Health to bill for medically unnecessary services.

In this instance the whistleblower will receive $424,155.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are a medical doctor, hospital administrator, or nurse manager possessing very well documented proof a hospital is intentionally overbilling Medicare for unnecessary medical procedures, please call us at 866-714-6466. Not only will we help you package your information, we will also help you get to some of the best whistleblower attorneys in the nation.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize when they say ER doctors, physicians, or nurse managers in any state they literally mean every state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.

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 federal 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 government contractor or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it's sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information."

Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a government contractor defrauding the federal government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleBlowerCenter.Com
