WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 2, 2017 / -- The California Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging an employee of a nursing home anywhere in California to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if they possess proof their employer is billing Medicare as if the facility is fully staffed when in reality the nursing home is short staffed with the result being patients are receiving substandard care. The group is also extremely interested in hearing from a nursing home employee in California if their employer is significantly involved in unnecessary medical treatments for their patients.

The group believes nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities billing Medicare for hours never worked by staff is a gigantic national problem and they believe these practices are easy to prove. The group refers to this specific type of practice as ‘short staffing’ and they are convinced the potential whistleblower with proof of these types of practices could get a substantial reward as they would like to discuss anytime at 866-714-6466. http://California.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

As an example of what the Corporate Whistleblower Center is referring to, in June 2017 the Justice Department announced a national healthcare company that specializes long term care agreed to pay the federal government $53 million dollars over allegations that the company or their affiliates violated the False Claims Act by causing the submission of false claims to government health care programs for medically unnecessary therapy and hospice services, and grossly substandard nursing care. In this instance, the whistleblowers will receive a million dollar+ reward for their information.

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We would be very happy to hear from a nurse, a nurse manager or employee of a nursing home or skilled nursing facility with proof of their employer billing Medicare for hours never worked by staff, and or billing Medicare for medical procedures or therapy that were unnecessary over the last three or four years.

“If you possess this type of information please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. This type of information could produce whistleblower rewards starting at about one hundred thousand dollars and go up based on how widespread the wrongdoing is, and the level proof on the part of the whistleblower. Why sit what could be a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth?” http://California.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the California Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The California Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a California based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in California can contact the Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://California.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com.
