Help stop the waste and abuse of Medicare by becoming a Medicare whistleblower.

what is medicare fraud

Medicare Whistleblowers are typically healthcare professionals who are aware of hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, Nursing Homes, Hospices, long term care and other health care facilities that routinely overcharge or seek reimbursement from government programs for medical services not rendered, drugs not used, beds not slept in and ambulance rides not taken. If you have information about a person or a company that is cheating the Medicare program (or any other government run healthcare program), you may be able to collect a large financial reward for reporting it here.

Common types of Medicare fraud include:

  • Hospice care centers overbilling for patients stays and care.
  • Rehabilitation centers systematically inflating rehab bills.
  • Durable medical equipment fraud: kickbacks schemes in medical sales of items such as bedding and wheelchairs.
  • Nursing home overbilling of staff time and patient care.
  • Assisted living center fraud.
  • Medical coding: alteration of medical codes for

    different procedures and diagnosis.

  • Ambulance service fraud: billing for rides not authorized by Medicare.

Healthcare professionals that report Medicare fraud may be entitled to receive a significant financial reward for coming forward to us with their information.

Becoming a Medicare whistleblower

Recent changes to US whistleblower laws allow healthcare professionals to collect a significant financial reward (often millions of dollars) for reporting fraud against the government in the healthcare industry. US laws now allow individuals reporting Medicare fraud to receive full protection from retaliation and collect up to 30% of the fines that the government collects.
