According to a report from Broadcast Newsroom, insiders and doctors may be able to cash in if they have proof of defective medical devices or drugs. The initiative comes from the Corporate Whistle Blower Center.
One focus in particular is on the lawsuits that continue to grow pertaining to the metal in metal hip implants. There is anticipation that overbilling from Medicaid and Medicare on these devices could go into the billions.
However without proof, it will be difficult to make much of it. With the help of insiders and doctors providing evidence that the manufacturers of these medical devices knew they were defective, it could lead to a successful outcome.
The Corporate Whistle Blower Center also indicates that those who are willing to uncover the truth could partake in the millions expected to be dispersed as rewards. Of course, there could be rewards given for other devices or drugs that are found to be dangerous or defective.
