Healthcare and Pharma, 2016

Medical coder Lucille Abrahamsen is set to receive a million dollar whistle blower bounty based on her whistleblower lawsuit against Hudson Valley Hematology Oncology Associates. Lucille Abrahamsen used the qui tam provision of the False Claims Act (Private citizen whistleblowers) to expose Hudson Valley Hematology Oncology Associates’ illegal conduct in billing Medicare and Medicaid for services not performed, services not medically necessary, and copayments. Hudson Valley admitted wrongdoing in the $5.31 million settlement and Abrahamsen will receive 15 to 25% of the recovery as the insider (medical coder) who exposed the billing schemes.
