WASHINGTON, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging physicians who possess well documented proof a hospital is deeply involved in gouging Medicare with unnecessary medical procedures to call them at 866-714-6466 to learn more about federal whistleblower reward programs. As the Whistleblower Center would like to explain to medical doctors, there was a recent multi-million dollar reward that went to doctors who blew the whistle on a hospital system engaged in this type of activity. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "The DOJ recently announced Saint Joseph Health System Inc. has agreed to pay $16.5 million to resolve allegations that Saint Joseph Hospital violated the False Claims Act by supposedly submitting false claims to the Medicare and Kentucky Medicaid programs for a variety of medically unnecessary cardiac procedures. Saint Joseph Health System operates numerous hospitals statewide, including Saint Joseph Hospital, which is based in London, KY. We at the Whistleblower Center encourage medical doctors who have well documented proof a hospital, or a healthcare facility, is engaged in these types of activities to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for information about federal whistleblower reward programs." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
This settlement also resolves allegations that Saint Joseph Hospital violated the federal Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute by entering into sham management agreements that financially benefited two cardiologists as an inducement for these medical doctors to direct more patients from their clinic to the hospital.
In this instance, the whistleblowers will receive a reward of $2.46 million of the $16.5 million settlement with Saint Joseph Hospital.
The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are an ER doctor, or a physician at a hospital, and you see administrators pushing for needless/unnecessary procedures such as a MRI, CT scan, heart catheterization, or for expensive tests involving Medicare patients, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain in detail federal whistleblower reward programs to you. If we believe your information has merit, we will assist you in packaging your information, and we will get you in contact with some of the best whistleblower attorneys in the nation." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
