Medicare Advantage Provider and Physician Pay
The whistleblower lawyers at Brown, LLC helped the government recover $300,000 from a doctor who allegedly committed Medicaid fraud by “upcoding” certain procedures and by diluting (and over-prescribing) an injectable antibiotic. The whistleblower worked as a physician assistant for the doctor but was fired, allegedly for complaining about the fraud. The whistleblower’s award included a share of the government’s recovery, plus a $385,000 settlement of his separate retaliation claim against the doctor.
Brown, LLC’s whistleblower attorneys were able to obtain a $175,000 settlement for retaliation suffered by a mid-level manager at a big defense contractor – a company with a long history of False Claims Act settlements. Although the fraud allegations in this case were eventually dismissed, the whistleblower still received a substantial payment. Defense contracting fraud is a serious problem, costing the American taxpayer billions of dollars. If you have inside information about such fraud, you owe it to your country and to yourself to contact whistleblower lawyers who know how to handle big, complex cases. Give Brown, LLC a call today.
