Health Care Fraud Whistleblower

Given the size and scope of the health care industry in Rhode Island, it is all too easy for unscrupulous individuals and businesses to commit health care fraud. If you are aware of someone or a business taking advantage of the system through fraudulent health care billing, we encourage you to come forward. You may be rewarded for your efforts.

Report Health Care Fraud And File A Qui Tam Claim

Under what is known as a qui tam action, commonly referred to as whistleblower law suits, an individual with knowledge of fraud can come forward with crucial information that can bring fraudulent activities to light. Upon successful prosecution of a qui tam claim, the individual initiating the claim can be rewarded with a percentage of the recovered funds. This can be a very lucrative incentive when one considers the substantial amount of money that changes hands regarding health care.

Whistleblower cases can be brought in almost any industry. In the health care industry, some common ways fraud may be committed include:

  • Billing for appointments that never happened
  • Billing for more time with a patient than what actually occurred
  • Billing for tests that were unnecessary or that were not actually performed
  • Overcharging for goods or services
  • Kickbacks
