Every year, the United States Medicare program loses billions of dollars due to deceptive activity committed by individuals and organizations that work with this program. This type of activity may affect each and every taxpayer and is a huge drain on the Medicare program. Arvind Bob Khurana, a nationally recognized whistleblower attorney, helps health care workers in New York who may have documentation of Medicare scams bring civil legal actions against these parties on behalf of the government. Mr. Khurana and his legal group represent healthcare employees in civil whistleblower actions, ensuring their welfare and defense under the federal False Claims Act.
The CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) contracts with lots of individuals, providers, and entities that manage Medicare reimbursements and process claims. The CMS must rely on that these private citizens and companies are in compliance with the regulations. Unfortunately, lots of are not, and that number is increasing. Due to the government's shortage of resources and hold cheaters responsible, the government has to depend on private healthcare employees in the industry to come forward with details so they can hold those who defraud the program responsible.
"Fraud against the Medicare program may take many forms," said Mr. Khurana. "It can be manipulating healthcare records so as to get paid more from Medicare, overcharging the government, providing substandard product or services, and many other things. The government counts on private whistleblowers to come forward with firsthand knowledge and proof of this conduct and the government rewards the whistleblowers for their vital support. Through qui tam suits, whistleblowers are able to bring civil claims against those celebrations on behalf of the federal government under the False Claims Act and can be rewarded for it."
The federal False Claims Act is a federal statute that makes it unlawful for any person or business entity to make false Medicare claims or otherwise defraud the federal government. It additionally allows a health care worker with information of scams against the Medicare program to file a whistleblower lawsuit on behalf of the federal government. In exchange for their details and effort, the whistleblowers may be entitled to gather rewards of between 15 to 30% of the recovery by the government. The act also has stipulations for whistleblower protection against any employer retribution which may result from submitting a lawsuit or accepting a deal with the government.
When a whistleblower steps forward with information and facts concerning Medicare scams, the case is filed in federal district court. It is put 'under seal' while the Department of Justice examines the lawsuit and the proof speaks with potential witnesses and talks to experts and company personnel. The government will then choose if it will participate in the lawsuit. If it does not, the whistleblower still may continue the case by themselves.
Since healthcare employees put themselves at risk doing this essential work, the federal False Claims Act particularly incentivizes them with a significant portion of the financial recuperation. In a successful claim, the government can recover as much as 3 times its losses to fraudulent activity in addition to penalties for each event of scams.
