Anyone have any experience with reporting medicare fraud? need advice NOW
There are some cases where, unfortunately, reporting the issue to the compliance officer may not resolve this issue. In that case, you have several options. One is the report to the federal Office of Inspector General: http://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/hotline/
. They do take anonymous complaints. If your organization is accredited, you should also report it to the accreditating organization (Joint Commission, CHAP, etc.). Finally, you should also report the issue to the State. Every state is different, but it would typically NOT be the board of nursing, as another poster suggested. It will the state agency that accredits or licenses the facility: the Department of Community Health, etc.
Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
