Over many years many governments have been experiencing an increasing growth in the medical expenditure. Surprisingly, the effort to uncover and stamp out the increasing fraud in the medical field and being facing great challenge. Fortunate for the cheats, the laxity in the medical field oversight, has made it very easy for them to push their activities in the various medical programs. Luckily in the recent past, the presence of whistleblowers has brought some change in cubing the increasing theft in the industry. The federal government works round the clock in the effort to ensure that the businesses and the individuals who defraud the government and the taxpayers of their money are punished.
The best thing about whistleblowing is that the particular individual or organization provides the government with information without the need to prove the claim. It is usually upon the government to follow the claim and find out the truth without letting out who provided the information. That makes the fraudsters mix freely with the those who give the information without knowing that they are the ones who blew the whistle about the fraud. It is the government who follow the claim to ascertain the truth about it.
Through whistleblowing the government ends up recovering quite some money that would otherwise be lost through fraudulent payments. There are many opportunities where those who want to use wrong records can bill the government for services purported to have been rendered to patients through various programs. If it was not for the whistleblowers, the government would continue losing money through the hands of those who want to obtain funds through unlawful means. Most fraudulent cases go unnoticed, and money is paid without anyone noticing leave alone saying anything about it. Therefore the whistleblowers play a very vital role in making sure that the wrongdoers are brought to book. If it were not for the whistleblowers; the government may never notice that they keep paying the wrong claim and losing money to the crazy people.
As a result of the critical part played by the whistleblowers, part of what the government recovered from those who steal the taxpayer’s money is shared to the whistleblowers. There is a legal team that works day and night to ensure that the whistleblowers are under protection against anyone who would wish to attack them. Thereis a team of lawyers that come together to make sure they protect the lives and the rights of those who offer the information. That way governments will get a relive from the many healthcare frauds committed every year through the wrong claims. With the help of the whistleblowers, the government will stop losing money and begin using it in the right programs.
