Why You Should Blow The Whistle
It is not right when U.S. taxpayers are defrauded for billions of dollars. It is not right when vulnerable patients get sub-standard care or get taken advantage of. You can help stop corporate fraud and the waste of taxpayer money. Billions of dollars have been recovered because of whistleblowers. You can do the right thing and be rewarded at the same time.
The U.S. government has used the False Claims Act to recover over $30 billion since 2009 . Of that, over $18 billion was recovered from the healthcare industry. As a whistleblower, you may be entitled to between 15% and 30% of the recovered money if your claim leads to a settlement or court decision.
Recent False Claims Act whistleblower rewards in healthcare:
- Johnson & Johnson: whistleblowers shared $167 million (one whistleblower in this case collected $28 million)
- Omnicare: one whistleblower received $17 million
- Amedisys: whistleblowers shared $26 million
