Whistleblower Claims and Medicare Fraud

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Recently in Miami, several people, including doctors and nurses, were sued for Medicare fraud schemes. Their scams involved over 159 million dollars in fraudulent billing to Medicare. Another person in Miami was sued in a separate lawsuit for Medicare fraud totaling a million dollars. Medicare fraud costs the U.S. Government and taxpayers millions, possibly billions, every year.

If you are a doctor, a nurse, or other health care employee, and you know about Medicare fraud anywhere in your industry, you can do your part to eliminate Medicare fraud and do so without fear of retaliation by the scam artists. You can become a whistleblower by hiring a private law firm familiar with whistleblower claims to represent you and recover money for the U.S. government. As a reward, you could get a percentage of the government’s collection in the prosecution of the fraud. Often, this reward can be hundreds of thousands of dollars, and maybe more. A federal whistleblower law providing for such rewards is designed to encourage private citizens to report fraud that costs the U.S. government and taxpayers. Medicare fraud is just one kind of whistleblower case. Any business that bills the federal government is subject to the corrupting influence of scam artists seeking to defraud taxpayers and seeing the government as an easy target.
