Medicare Billing Fraud
Medicare fraud happens every day and you the taxpayer are footing the bill to the tune of billions of dollars a year. Now the government has created new laws to reduce this fraud and provide very significant rewards for those people who reveal. The reward that a whistleblower can recover may be up to 30% of what the government collects.
The Medicare system is designed to provide healthcare services to certain qualified individuals – namely people age 65 or older. When medical professionals and other individuals commit fraud against the U.S. Government, the funds that should be spent treating Medicare patients end up in the hands of wrongdoers.

Under the False Claims Act, private citizens may bring a lawsuit against those perpetrating Medicare Billing Fraud on behalf of the government and get back a percentage of the money recovered.Filing a Medicare Billing Fraud Qui Tam / Whistleblower LawsuitThe False Claims Act contains a qui tam provision - commonly referred to as a “Whistleblower” provision, which entitles private citizens with knowledge of Medicare billing fraud to recover a percentage of the financial recovery on behalf of the U.S. Government.
