The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "The DOJ recently announced Saint Joseph Health System Inc. has agreed to pay $16.5 million to resolve allegations that Saint Joseph Hospital violated the False Claims Act by supposedly submitting false claims to the Medicare and Kentucky Medicaid programs for a variety of medically unnecessary cardiac procedures. Saint Joseph Health System operates numerous hospitals statewide, including Saint Joseph Hospital, which is based in London, KY. We at the Whistleblower Center encourage medical doctors who have well documented proof a hospital, or a healthcare facility, is engaged in these types of activities to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for information about federal whistleblower reward programs." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

This settlement also resolves allegations that Saint Joseph Hospital violated the federal Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute by entering into sham management agreements that financially benefited two cardiologists as an inducement for these medical doctors to direct more patients from their clinic to the hospital.  

In this instance, the whistleblowers will receive a reward of $2.46 million of the $16.5 million settlement with Saint Joseph Hospital. 

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are an ER doctor, or a physician at a hospital, and you see administrators pushing for needless/unnecessary procedures such as a MRI, CT scan, heart catheterization, or for expensive tests involving Medicare patients, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain in detail federal whistleblower reward programs to you. If we believe your information has merit, we will assist you in packaging your information, and we will get you in contact with some of the best whistleblower attorneys in the nation." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com 

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center

  • Do not go to the government first if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the federal 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 government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it's sufficient, we will help find the right law firms to assist in advancing your information."
  • The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Washington, and Alaska.

Any type of insider or employee who possesses significant proof of their employer or a government contractor defrauding the federal government is encouraged to contact Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
