The Corporate Whistleblower Center says,There is little oversight for billing practices for procedures and treatments involving Medicare at many hospitals, or healthcare facilities in our opinion. Skilled nursing facilities and nursing homes can be cash cows for people who want to take advantage of the system. Because of this, opportunities for whistleblowers to come forward and be rewarded are very real, and we’d like to talk to anyone with well documented proof to call us anytime at 866-714-6466.
Penalties for Medicare fraudas well as the rewards for whistleblowerscan be astronomical. Recently, The Ensign Group, which operates skilled nursing facilities throughout the United States, agreed to pay $ 48 million to settle allegations that it submitted fraudulent claims to Medicare for services that were not medically necessary. According to the suit, from 1999 to 2011, allegedly six different skilled nursing facilities routinely submitted false claims to the government for services that included physical and speech therapy, even though they were not medically necessary for the patients. This was allegedly done to increase their Medicare reimbursement.
The two whistleblowers in this case will both receive a portion of the $ 48 million settlement.
Taking advantage of senior citizens and their conditions in order to bilk the government out of taxpayer dollars is not something that should be tolerated by anyone, says the Corporate Whistleblower Center. We are asking all insiders who have documented proof of ongoing Medicare fraud to contact us at 866-714-6466. We keep all calls confidential, and we will explain the whistleblower reward program and process to you, then help you get your case to the best whistleblower attorneys in the country. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) the leading national organization working to improve the lives of Hispanic older adults, their families, and caregivers has been working across states to raise awareness and empower Latino workers and older adults to advocate for leaves that pay laws at the local and state level. Leaves that pay policies are the best way to ensure that workers dont have to choose between their family and their job. Job security and steady wages are crucial for the Hispanic community as many workers are also caregivers and heads of households.
With the flu season underway, it is likely that workers without paid sick days are going to work ill. This creates a toll on the individuals health, but also makes possible the spread of the illness to those in the work or family environment. Similarly, there are also workers who do have leaves that pay, but dont use it when they are sick because they are unaware of the benefit.
The Leaves That Pay initiative is more than good public health policy, its common sense, said Dr. Yanira Cruz, NHCOA President and CEO. When workers can stay home to take care of themselves or a loved one while earning wages, both individuals and the health care system are better off in the long run. Leaves that pay enable workers to avoid spreading illnesses, and to manage minor health problems before they become serious or chronic.
That is why NHCOA has been working to raise awareness among Latino workers in California, which has leaves that pay laws in place. While these workers are the ones who need leaves that pay the most, they are the least likely to use it in the event of an illness. In fact, according to a 2011 study by Eileen Appelbaum and Ruth Milkman only 34% of Hispanic Californians were aware these laws existed. Likewise, NHCOA has been working with advocates in New York City to bring a leaves that pay bill, which was introduced more than a year ago, to vote in the City Council. As the initiative expands, NHCOA hopes to empower Latino communities in Southern Florida to advocate for a similar law, and to expand an existing worker disability law in New Jersey.
NHCOAs Leaves That Pays initiative is sponsored by the Ford Foundation. For more information, visit http://www.nhcoa.org.
