Corporate Whistleblower Center Urges Whistleblowers With Proof of Clinical Trial Fraud Involving Tax Dollars to Contact Them About Reward Programs
Date:9/25/2013

(PRWEB) September 25, 2013

The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “According to a Justice Department press release on August 28th, 2013, providers are typically not allowed to bill Medicare for care and services that the clinical trial sponsors have already paid for, or agreed to pay. The lawsuit against Emory by the United States and the State of Georgia alleged that Emory University billed Medicare and Medicaid for services the clinical trial sponsor already agreed to pay. In some cases, the sponsors had already paid, and Emory was paid twice for the same service.”

According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, "This lawsuit is significant because there are a large number of federally funded clinical trials and research initiatives being conducted at universities or teaching hospitals. A university, research facility, or teaching hospital that is defrauding the government by simultaneously billing the government and receiving clinical trial sponsor money and billing Medicare for patient care is a perfect example of an opportunity for a whistleblower to possibly receive a substantial reward." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

Potential whistleblowers are encouraged to call the Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466, for more information about whistleblower reward programs, provided the wrongdoing is over $1 million.

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, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, 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 to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleBlowerCenter.Com
