I recently resigned from a job I held for over 2 years, upon resigning I learned that my name and credentials along with a couple of other nurses (I was not given the names) was signed without my knowledge to some patient visits and submitted to Medicare. These visits were not completed or the persons signing could not find them for a Medicare Audit.
I want to report it to both Medicare and the Department of Regulations, however I am afraid of some sort of retaliation, besides the fact that I am not sure how to report and who do I go to first, the Regulations Department or Medicare. I was also informed that Administrators approved of this and several people helped in this fraud. The owner of the company was conveniently out of town, and knows the law.
Please if anyone out there can help me figure this out I would appreciate it, just thinking about it causes me great anxiety.
