Marketer and sleep technician Elma F. Dresser will receive a $545,000 cash whistleblower award for her whistleblower lawsuit against northern California’s Bay Sleep Clinic, affiliates Qualium Corporation and Amerimed Corporation, and owners and operators Anooshiravan Mostowfipour and Tara Nader. Elma Dresser filed the lawsuit under the qui tam provision of the False Claims Act, alleging Bay Sleep Clinic defrauded Medicare by allowing non-licensed staff to conduct sleep studies and dispense medical devices, offering sleep testing and products at non-approved locations, engaging in self-dealing and paying kickbacks for referrals. Bay Sleep Clinic admits no liability in the $2.6 million settlement. Elma F. Dresser will receive 21% of the government recovery for exposing the fraud.
