Medical Billing Fraud and other forms of Health Care Fraud are the fastest growing crime in the United States and costs the health care industry, Medicare, and Medicaid over $200 Billion each year.  To combat this rapidly growing and lucrative crime, doctors, nurses. and other medical billing fraud whistleblowers are being offered large financial rewards and whistleblower protections for properly exposing medical billing fraud and false billing. For more information on medical billing fraud rewards or false billing whistleblower rewards, please read below or go to the following web page: Medical Billing Fraud Whistleblower Reward Lawsuits, Medicaid Billing Fraud Whistleblower Reward Lawsuits, and Health Care Professionals Can Earn Large Rewards for Exposing Fraud.

Health Care Providers Are Encouraged to Report Fraud To Obtain Rewards and Prevent Potential Criminal Liability

If you have evidence of systematic medical billing fraud or false billing of Medicaid or Medicare, it is important that you are the first to step forward to blow the whistle on the Medicare Fraud and/or Medicaid Fraud.  Blowing the whistle on this fraud can prevent potential criminal liability for those that kept the secret, help Medicare and Medicaid recoup stolen money, and result in a large financial reward for the whistleblower. 

The Government is Performing Nationwide Sweeps of Medical Providers to Identify Fraud

Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell announced today a nationwide sweep led by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force in 17 districts, resulting in charges against 243 individuals, including 46 doctors, nurses and other licensed medical professionals, for their alleged participation in Medicare fraud schemes involving approximately $712 million in false billings.  In addition, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) also suspended a number of providers using its suspension authority as provided in the Affordable Care Act.  This coordinated takedown is the largest in Strike Force history, both in terms of the number of defendants charged and loss amount.   For more information, please go to the following web site: National Medicare Fraud Takedown Results in Charges Against 243 Individuals for Approximately $712 Million in False Billing
