Allegedly the company entered into numerous physician-services contracts on behalf of its hospitals. Although the purpose of these contracts was ostensibly to retain physicians as medical directors or in other administrative or medical roles, the United States alleged that the company’s payments under these contracts were intended to induce the physicians to refer patients to the healthcare company’s facilities.
The company allegedly violated the anti-kickback statutes by further-by allegedly-entering into a, “reciprocal referral relationship” with unaffiliated healthcare providers such as home health companies. In this instance the whistleblower will receive $2,345,6700.

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 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 company or individual to come clean on Stark Anti-Kickback Laws or overbilling Medicare. 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.”
