June 02, 2021 at 16:08
Each year, the nationwide Medicare program loses billions of dollars due to fraudulent activity performed by private citizens and organizations that work with the program. This affects every taxpayer and is a huge drain on the Medicare program. Arvind Bob Khurana, an experienced whistleblower attorney, helps health care employees in Georgia who have documentation of Medicare scams bring civil legal actions against these entities on behalf of the government. Mr. Khurana and his legal group represent healthcare employees in civil whistleblower lawsuits, ensuring their welfare and defense under the federal False Claims Act.
The CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services) works with many people, businesses, and organizations that administer Medicare compensations and process claims. The CMS must essentially trust that individuals and companies remain in compliance with the rules. Sadly, many are not, and that number is growing. As a result of the government's lack of resources to police and hold defrauders responsible, the government has to rely 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 may take many forms," said Mr. Khurana. "It can include adjusting patient records so as to earn more from Medicare, surcharging the government, providing substandard healthcare products or services, and many other things. The government counts on private whistleblowers to come forward with firsthand knowledge and documentation of these behaviors and the government compensates the whistleblowers for their critical assistance. Through qui tam lawsuits, whistleblowers are able to bring civil claims against those parties on behalf of the federal government under the False Claims Act and can be rewarded for it."
The federal False Claims Act is a federal statute that makes it criminal for any entity to make false Medicare claims or otherwise defraud the government. It likewise enables a health care employee with information of fraud against the Medicare program to submit a whistleblower legal action on behalf of the federal government. In exchange for their information and effort, the whistleblowers are entitled to collect financial rewards between 15% to 30% of the funds recovered by the federal government. The act also has stipulations for whistleblower protection against any company retaliation that may result from filing a claim or accepting work with the federal government.
When a whistleblower comes forward with information relating to Medicare fraud, the case is filed in federal district court. It is put 'under seal' while the Department of Justice examines the lawsuit and the evidence speaks with potential witnesses and seeks advice from specialists and firm workers. The government will then make a decision if it will intervene. If the government does not choose to participate, the whistleblower still may continue the case on their own.
Because health care employees put themselves in jeopardy doing this crucial work, the federal False Claims Act strongly incentivizes the potential whistleblowers with a significant portion of the monetary recuperation. In a successful claim, the government can recuperate as much as three times its losses to fraudulent activity in addition to charges for each occurrence of scams.

"My purpose as a Medicare whistleblower attorney is to represent these brave private citizens, to help protect them and keep them anonymous, and to work to help ensure that they are rewarded for their work," continued Mr. Khurana. "Those health care workers in Georgia who may become aware of fraudulent activity can call our office, and we would be glad to discuss how whistleblower lawsuits may work and how the whistleblower may be rewarded and protected. With their courageous help, we can help hold Medicare scams in control and hold those who commit it liable for their activities."
