If you are considering becoming a whistleblower, you’re sure to have a lot of questions. First of all, the team at the DJO Whistleblower Law Group wants to thank you for making the courageous decision to come forward.

Next, we’re here to help you with the questions you may have. One of the first being “Where do I start?” The first place to start is to consult with a healthcare fraud attorney. If you have never been a whistleblower before (which most people haven’t), you might not know a lot about healthcare fraud attorneys.

Here is some information about healthcare fraud attorneys to help get you started.

They are experts in the different types of healthcare fraud

There are many different things that constitute healthcare fraud. Presenting your concerns to an attorney may uncover more instances of fraud than you initially thought. They are experts in numerous types of healthcare fraud, including:

  • Upcoding
  • Multiple billing
  • Billing for services not rendered
  • Paying kickbacks for a referral
  • False care certifications
  • Waiver of coinsurance payments
  • Commission only sales reps
  • Fraudulent billing of healthcare services
  • Fraudulent patient assistance programs

…and so much more. So, if you find yourself witnessing some kind of healthcare fraud, be sure to disclose as much detail as possible to the attorney as they may recognize signs of additional fraud.

They can help you determine if you have a good case and what would be the best course of action.

Something that holds many potential whistleblowers back from coming forward is not being sure if there is legitimate case of fraud taking place. Healthcare fraud attorneys can provide a consultation to let you know if you have an actionable case.

and a number of state-level regulatory bodies, healthcare fraud attorneys can provide expert advice on how to effectively blow the whistle in your unique situation.
