Medicare and Medicaid billing fraud scams are costing the United States an estimated one hundred billion dollars ($100,000,000,000.00) each year and with approximately 10,000 new people gaining Medicare benefits each day, the cost of Medicare billing scams including upcoding, double billing, unnecessary services, and billing for services not needed is predicted to continue to increase. 

To combat Medicare Billing Fraud Scams and Medicaid Billing Fraud Scams, the United States government has amended the Federal False Claims Act to encourage more Medicare Fraud whistleblowers to step up and blow the whistle on Medicare Fraud.  Medicare Billing Fraud Whistleblowers and Medicare Payment Fraud Whistleblowers that are the original source of specialized knowledge of Medicare Fraud can make substantial recoveries if they are the first to file a successful qui tam claim under the Federal False Claims Act.  

In addition, the United States Government is encouraging people including administrators, executors, and probate attorneys with special knowledge of systematic Medicare fraud, financial fraud, and securities fraud with new whistleblower bounty actions and amendments to the Federal False Claims Act that provide economic incentives for whistleblowers that have original evidence of and are the first to file on substantial Medicare fraud, Financial Fraud, and other forms of fraud.

Texas Medicare Fraud Lawyer, Jason S. Coomer, is working with Medicare Fraud Whistleblowers to expose Medicare fraud and blow the whistle on criminals that are fraudulently stealing from the United States and the Medicare program.

Below are some press releases regarding exposing systematic Medicare Fraud, CHAMPUS fraud, and Medicaid Fraud.


EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN GROUP TO PAY U.S. AND TEXAS $268,460 FOR HEALTH CARE BILLING FRAUD INVOLVING FEDERAL AGENCIES

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Coastal Emergency Physicians Group of Texas, P.A., will pay the United States and Texas $268,460 to settle allegations that Medicus Medical Group, which Coastal acquired in January 1993, received over payments from federal health insurance programs based on false claims submitted by Medicus' billing company, the Department of Justice announced today.

Assistant Attorney General Frank W. Hunger of the Civil Division said Coastal, an emergency physician staffing company, made the payment to resolve allegations of false billings by Medicus to the Medicare, Medicaid and CHAMPUS programs.

The Department said Medicus hired an Oklahoma City billing company, Emergency Physicians Billing Services (EPBS), to submit claims on its behalf to federal and state health care programs. EPBS then submitted false Medicare, Medicaid and CHAMPUS claims on Medicus' behalf for patients seen by Medicus physicians. The United States alleged that EPBS typically changed the codes of claims submitted to the agencies and billed for services more extensive than those actually provided by Medicus' physicians.

The agreement settles a dispute with Coastal originally brought as a qui tam case in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City. As part of the settlement, the estate of Theresa Semtner, who filed the suit on behalf of the United States, will receive approximately $47,394. This is in addition to the $1.5 million the estate will receive from a recent settlement with another defendant in the action, EmCare Inc. The United States is continuing to pursue recoveries against EPBS and its other customers.

The case, United States ex rel. Semtner v. Emergency Physicians Billing Services, Civil Action No. Civ-94-617-(C) (W.D. OK), was conducted by the Civil Division with the assistance of the Department of Health and Human Service's offices of Inspector General in Washington, D.C., and Dallas, Texas; the Oklahoma City office of the FBI; the Tulsa Resident Agency of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service; the Program Integrity Branch of the Office of CHAMPUS; the Office of Inspector General for the Office of Personnel Management in Washington, D.C.; and various state attorneys general Medicaid Fraud Control Units around the country. Additional audit support was provided by Xact, the Medicare intermediary in Pennsylvania.


EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN GROUP TO PAY U.S. & MICHIGAN $1.6 MILLION FOR HEALTH CARE BILLING FRAUD

WASHINGTON, D.C. An emergency physician group in Michigan will pay the

United States and the state of Michigan $1.6 million to settle allegations that the group submitted false claims through its billing company, the Department of Justice announced today. Today's settlement resolves allegations that the group, Medical Center Emergency Services, P.C., overcharged Medicare, Medicaid, the Department of Defense's TRICARE program and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP).

The Department said that Medical Center Emergency Services hired Emergency Physicians Billing Services (EPBS) to submit claims on its behalf to federal and state health care programs. The Oklahoma City billing company then submitted false Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE and FEHBP claims on the group's behalf for patients seen by Medical Center Emergency Services physicians. The Department said that EPBS typically upcoded claims and billed for services more extensive than those actually provided by the physicians.

"This settlement is yet another example of the United States' commitment to protecting federal funds from fraud and abuse committed by physicians and health care billing companies," said Assistant Attorney General Robert D. McCallum, Jr. of the Department's Civil Division.

The agreement settles a dispute with the group originally brought as a qui tam or whistleblower case in the United States District Court in Oklahoma City. As part of the settlement, the estate of Theresa Semtner, which filed the suit on behalf of the United States, will receive approximately $279,943. Ms. Semtner was a former employee of EPBS. This settlement is the latest in a series of settlements with other EPBS clients. The United States settled with EPBS in October 1999.

The case was conducted by the Justice Department's Civil Division with the assistance of the Office of the Inspector General, Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C.; the Oklahoma City office of the FBI; the Tulsa Resident Agency of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service; the Program Integrity Branch of the TRICARE Program, the United States Department of Defense; the Office of Inspector General for the Office of Personnel Management in Washington, D.C.; and the Michigan Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

Estate representative whistleblowers, executor whistleblowers, administrator whistleblowers, and probate lawyer whistleblowers are stepping up and exposing Medicare fraud that is costing taxpayers millions.  The economic incentive for these probate and estate representative whistleblowers, administrator whistleblowers, and probate whistleblowers is that if they are an original source with special knowledge of fraud and are the first to file, a portion of the money that the government recovers can be rewarded to the proper whistleblower.  Depending on the extent of the fraud, qui tam recoveries for the government have been in the billions of dollars and whistleblower recoveries have been in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

There are several keys to a successful False Claims Act Qui Tam Whistleblower action including 1) obtaining original and specialized information of the fraud, 2) being the first to file regarding the specific fraud, and 3) protecting the whistleblower for retaliation. 

Original and Specialized Information of Fraud is Essential for a Systematic Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuit, Probate Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuit, Financial Investment Fraud Bounty Action Lawsuit, or Estate Representative Whistleblower Lawsuit

People with specialized knowledge and evidence of systematic Medicare fraud and large financial fraud such as estate administrators, representatives, and executors, can be the source for original and specialized information that leads to a recovery from a large health care provider, corporation, or financial institute.

It is also essential to not delay in coming forward with a False Claim Act Qui Tam Action as the first whistleblower to file is eligible to be a relator and make a large recovery for exposing the fraud. 

Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Protection, Medicare Reimbursement Whistleblower Protection, Medicare Compliance Whistleblower Protection, and Financial Investment Fraud Whistleblower Protection

It is also important to understand potential whistleblower protections under the False Claims Act and to discuss with an attorney how to prepare for potential retaliation or aggressive attacks by the employer or contractor.  For more information on this topic please go to the following web page on False Claims Act Lawsuit Whistleblower Protections
