Each year, the national Medicare program may lose significant funds because of deceitful activity committed by people and companies that deal with this program. This type of activity impacts every taxpayer and is a significant drain on the Medicare program. Arvind Bob Khurana, a nationally recognized whistleblower attorney, helps healthcare employees in California who have evidence of Medicare fraud bring civil claims against these parties on behalf of the government. Mr. Khurana and his legal group represent health care workers in civil whistleblower actions, ensuring their welfare and defense under the federal False Claims Act.
The CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) works with numerous individuals, companies, and organizations that administer Medicare repayments and file claims. The CMS has to ultimately trust that people and companies remain in compliance with the regulations. Sadly, numerous entities are not, and that number is increasing. Considering the government's lack of resources to police and hold defrauders liable, it must depend on private healthcare workers in the market to come forward with information so they can hold those who defraud the program responsible.
"Fraud against the Medicare program can take many forms," said Mr. Khurana. "It can be adjusting healthcare records in order to get paid more from Medicare, surcharging the government, providing second-rate healthcare services or products, or many other things. The government depends on private whistleblowers to come forward with firsthand knowledge and documentation of these behaviors and the government compensates the whistleblowers for their important help. Through qui tam suits, whistleblowers are able to bring civil claims against those parties on behalf of the government under the False Claims Act and can be rewarded for it."
The federal False Claims Act is a federal statute that renders it unlawful for any entity to make incorrect Medicare claims or otherwise defraud the federal government. It likewise allows a healthcare employee with knowledge of scams against the Medicare program to submit a whistleblower lawsuit on behalf of the government. In exchange for their info and effort, the whistleblowers may be entitled to gather financial rewards of between 15 to 30% of the funds recovered by the federal government. The act also has provisions for whistleblower shield against any employer retaliation which may result from submitting a lawsuit or accepting work with the government.
When a whistleblower steps forward with relevant information concerning Medicare fraud, the case is submitted to a federal district court. It is put 'under seal' while the Department of Justice investigates the claim and the proof speaks with witnesses and seeks advice from experts and company workers. The government will then choose if it will intervene. If the government does not choose to participate, the whistleblower still may continue the case by themselves.
Due to the fact that health care workers place themselves in jeopardy doing this important work, the federal False Claims Act particularly incentivizes them with a substantial portion of the financial recovery. In a successful claim, the federal government can recuperate as much as three times its losses to fraudulent activity in addition to charges for each event of fraud.

"My role as a Medicare whistleblower attorney is to represent these brave people, to help protect them and keep them anonymous, and to work hard that they are rewarded for their efforts," continued Mr. Khurana. "Those health care employees in California who may become aware of deceitful activity can call our firm, and we would be glad to talk about how whistleblower lawsuits work and how the whistleblower may be rewarded and protected. With their valiant help, we can help hold Medicare fraud in control and hold those who perpetrate it accountable for their activities."
