Woman Blows the Whistle on Genesys for Overbilling
A former internal auditor for the Genesys Regional Medical Center will receive $133,882 for her part in a whistleblower suit that resulted in a $669,413 settlement between the Center and the U.S. Justice Department.
The auditor, Wendy Domke, filed a whistleblower lawsuit against Genesys after becoming concerned that the company was overcharging Medicare in 2006.
Genesys allegedly violated the False Claims Act by “billing Medicare for higher levels of service than were actually rendered to patients,” also known as “upcoding,” according to the Justice Department.
