Hospital Kickback Lawyer Represents Medical Professionals Who Want to Expose Illegal Kickbacks and Earn Financial Rewards by Texas Hospital Kickback Lawyer Jason S. Coomer

The Anti-Kickback statute prohibits any person or business entity from making or accepting payment to induce or reward any person for referring, recommending or arranging for the purchase of any item or service for which payment may be made under a federally-funded health care program. The statute prohibits kickbacks, bribes, inducements, rewards, and other economic incentives that induce physicians to refer patients for services or recommend purchase of medical supplies that will be reimbursable under government health care programs.

The United States Is Offering Large Rewards to Medical Professionals Who Properly Expose Illegal Kickbacks and Significant Health Care Fraud

Health Care Fraud is one of the fastest growing crimes.  It is estimated that health care fraud in the United States has increased to over two hundred billion dollars ($200,000,000,000.00) each year and is continuing to increase each year. Health Care Fraud includes Medicare billing scams and Medicaid billing scams.  Examples of these types of health care fraud include upcoding, double billing, billing for unnecessary services, billing for services not needed, and billing for services not provided. To combat Medicare fraud scams and Medicaid fraud scams, the United States government has amended the Federal False Claims Act to encourage medical professionals to step up and blow the whistle on Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud. Medicare Fraud Whistleblowers and Medicaid Fraud Whistleblowers that are the original source of specialized knowledge of large health care fraud scam can make substantial recoveries if they are the first to file a successful qui tam claim under the Federal False Claims Act.

Health care administrators, doctors, nurses, and therapists are stepping forward and blowing the whistle on Tricare, the Veterans' Administration (VA), and Medicare billing fraud including manipulation of outlier payments to Medicare, kickbacks, upcoding, or bill padding. These health care professionals are commonly working with a lawyer to make sure that the fraud is properly exposed and to protect their career.
