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

As part of its ongoing efforts to expand the reach of its innovative online learning program, Smart Horizons Career Online Education (SHCOE), based in Pensacola, FL, has partnered with Ashland University of Ashland, OH, to launch Ashland Career Online High School. This new online school offering students both an 18-credit high school diploma and a credentialed career certificate will be made available to inmates in U.S. corrections facilities.

The Florida Department of Corrections recently announced its intent to award a contract to SHCOE for the provision of online career training and high school education services to Florida inmates, said Dr. Howard Liebman, CEO and Superintendent of SHCOE. Now this partnership with Ashland Universitya recognized leader in providing post-secondary education to prison populationsfurther expands SHCOEs role in the corrections space. Our goal is to provide online high school and career education to inmates in all 50 states around the United States. This is certainly another step in accomplishing that goal.

This collaboration with SHCOE fulfills a need to work with a population that has been identified as needing more assistance to succeed, said John Dowdell, Director of Ashland Universitys Gill Center for Business and Economic Education. This is a mutually beneficial relationship in which each organization can build on the strengths of the other. In addition to extending education opportunities, another goal of this partnership is to bring about a reduction in recidivism among prison inmates.

Both Dr. Liebman and Mr. Dowdell see this partnership between SHCOE and Ashland University as a means of creating a seamless educational flow in the corrections space. Inmates will have the opportunity to earn their high school diplomas and career certificates through Ashland Career Online High School before moving on to post-secondary studies with Ashland University, all in preparation of being re-incorporated into communities as productive members of the workforce.

Ashland University has continued to build technological components into its delivery of educational programs to members of corrections systems and incorporating a career online high school is a natural next step in the process, said Dr. Liebman.

Because of its relationship with Advanced Systems Technology (AST), a business partner in the SHCOE district, SHCOE is also uniquely positioned to address security issues involved in providing online education programs to incarcerated populations. AST is a technology firm that has provided numerous solutions to the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Justice since 1984 and has delivered online training to over 2,000,000 individuals.
