Whistleblower lawsuit & what they did to the whistleblower
“Frohsin & Barger Qui Tam Suit Prompts Amedisys to Pay $150 Million
In 2009, Frohsin & Barger client, April Brown was a nurse and single-mother of two, struggling to make ends meet in the sleepy town of Monroeville, Alabama, best known as home to writer Harper Lee and the inspiration for her fictional town of Maycomb in To Kill a Mockingbird. Brown travelled rural Alabama caring for homebound patients: elderly shut-ins and the indigent infirm. What she witnessed about her employer’s Medicare billing, however, eventually caused her to become a whistleblower in the groundbreaking case of United States ex rel. April Brown v. Amedisys, Inc., CV-10-BE-0135-S (NDAL 2009), which today resulted in the largest home health fraud settlement in U.S. history, prompting the company – which denied all wrongdoing – to return $150,000,000 to the taxpayers, according to court documents.”
