The Anatomy of Whistle Blowing in Healthcare

The Anatomy of Whistle Blowing in Healthcare

Whistleblower lawsuits are one of the government's most effective tools for prosecuting healthcare fraud. Last year alone, the government recovered more than $2.9 billion as a result of lawsuits initiated by whistleblowers. The whistleblowers themselves received more than $519 million in rewards for their help in exposing government fraud. The continued rise in whistleblower cases shows no signs of abating and healthcare professionals and consultants need to remain vigilant to fraud enforcement trends.
