Whistleblower Legal Help in Montana by Arvind Bob Khurana, Healthcare Whistleblower Lawyer

Each year, the United States Medicare program loses billions of dollars because of the illegal activity perpetrated by private citizens and companies that work with this program. This impacts every taxpayer and is a considerable drain on the Medicare program. Arvind Bob Khurana, a nationally recognized healthcare whistleblower lawyer, helps healthcare workers in Montana who have documentation of Medicare fraud bring civil lawsuits against these entities on behalf of the government. Mr. Khurana and his legal team represent healthcare employees in civil whistleblower lawsuits, ensuring their safety and security under the federal False Claims Act.
The CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) contracts with numerous private citizens, providers, and entities that manage Medicare repayments and file claims. The CMS has to essentially trust that people and entities are in compliance with the regulations. Unfortunately, numerous entities are not, and that number is growing. Because of the government's lack of resources and to hold cheaters accountable, the government has to count on individual healthcare employees in the market to come forward with info so they can hold those who defraud the program responsible.
"Fraud against the Medicare program may take many forms," said the Montana healthcare whistleblower lawyer "The Fraud can include manipulating healthcare records so as to earn more from Medicare, surcharging the government, providing second-rate services or products, and many other activities. The government counts on private whistleblowers to come forward with firsthand knowledge and evidence of fraudulent activities and the government compensates the whistleblowers for their crucial help. Through qui tam suits, whistleblowers have the ability to bring civil claims against those parties 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 criminal for any entity to make false Medicare claims or otherwise defraud the federal government. It also allows a healthcare worker with knowledge of fraudulent activity against the Medicare program to submit a whistleblower legal action on behalf of the government. In exchange for their info and effort, the whistleblowers may be entitled to collect rewards of as much as 15 and 30 percent of the financial burden from the federal government. The act likewise has stipulations for whistleblower security against any employer retribution that results from filing a lawsuit or agreeing to work with the government.
When a whistleblower steps forward with evidence relating to Medicare scams, the case is filed in federal district court. It is put 'under seal' while the Department of Justice investigates the complaint and the evidence, speaks with potential witnesses, and speaks with professionals and firm workers. The government will then choose if it will intervene. If it does not choose to step in, the whistleblower still might continue the case on their own.
Because health care employees may place themselves personally at risk doing this important work, the federal False Claims Act highly incentivizes the potential whistleblowers with a substantial part of the monetary recuperation. In an effective claim, the federal government can recover approximately 3 times its losses in addition to penalties for each occurrence of fraud.

"My purpose as a Medicare whistleblower attorney is to represent these brave individuals, to help keep them safe and anonymous, and to work hard so that they are compensated for their efforts," continued Mr. Khurana. "Those healthcare workers in Montana who have knowledge of deceptive activity can call our offices, and we would be happy to discuss how whistleblower cases may work and how the whistleblower may be rewarded and shielded. With their courageous assistance, we can help hold Medicare fraud in control and hold those who commit fraud liable for their actions."
