Expose Medicare Fraud: Medical Professionals Can Earn Large Financial Rewards and Prevent Potential Criminal Liability By Properly Exposing Medicare Fraud by Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Reward Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

Medical professionals including physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, compliance professionals, Medicare coders, and Medicare reimbursement managers can earn large financial rewards for properly exposing systematic billing fraud.  By coming forward and reporting
Medicare fraud, these Medicare fraud whistleblowers can receive large financial rewards for being the first to file on Medicare billing fraud scams and can also avoid potential criminal liability for not reporting Medicare billing fraud.

The United States Department of Justice Has Charged Over 2,900 Defendants for Medicare Fraud and Has Collected Over $26.9 Billion Since 2009 Through The Federal False Claims Act

The United States Department of Justice and several states are working hard to identify Medicare fraud schemes and Medicaid fraud schemes.  Not only are they offering large financial rewards to medicare professionals for exposing large systematic fraud schemes, but they have created a strike force to identify medical professionals who are committing Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud or who are not reporting fraud.

National Health Care Fraud Takedown Results in Charges against 301 Individuals for Approximately $900 Million in False Billing | OPA | Department of Justice

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell announced today an unprecedented nationwide sweep led by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force in 36 federal districts, resulting in criminal and civil charges against 301 individuals, including 61 doctors, nurses and other licensed medical professionals, for their alleged participation in health care fraud schemes involving approximately $900 million in false billings. 

Twenty-three state Medicaid Fraud Control Units also participated in today’s arrests.  In addition, the HHS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is suspending payment to a number of providers using its suspension authority provided in the Affordable Care Act. This coordinated takedown is the largest in history, both in terms of the number of defendants charged and loss amount.

The Medicare Fraud Strike Force operations are part of the Health Care Fraud Prevention & Enforcement Action Team (HEAT), a joint initiative announced in May 2009 between the Department of Justice and HHS to focus their efforts to prevent and deter fraud and enforce
current anti-fraud laws around the country.  The Medicare Fraud Strike Force operates in nine locations and since its inception in March 2007 has charged over 2,900 defendants who collectively have falsely billed the Medicare program for over $8.9 billion
