“In Medieval Times the Chris Riedel I know would have been Sir Lancelot. In today’s world he donned armor to battle billing fraud of multi-billion dollar companies and the resistance of some state justice departments to take action to enforce their laws and regulations.”
Richard Jaffe, renowned Civil Rights attorney and author, Quest for Justice
“Hard-hitting, takes you into the inner workings and twists and turns of negotiating with the DOJ and state governments … and a hugely important story, because it affects all of us who get medical labs. Fascinating. My hat’s off to Chris Riedel for taking up the fight for all of us.”
Robert L. Michel, Publisher of The Dark Report
Probably the single greatest threat for a clinical laboratory or genetic testing company is for a whistleblower to file a qui tam action that brings in federal prosecutors and results in criminal indictments or civil settlements involved tens of millions of dollars. Now Chris Riedel, who has spent the last fifteen years fighting healthcare fraud and has secured $550 million in settlements and judgments so far for taxpayers, uses this book to draw back the curtain on how whistleblower cases start, why some cases succeed and others don’t, and what it is like to work with government prosecutors. His insights and advice are ‘must reading’ for anyone considering initiating a whistleblower case against a lab, as well as for lab owners and healthcare executives to understand what practices must be avoided to escape a crippling whistleblower lawsuit. It is also a good true crime thriller with unexpected twists and turns that will keep readers turning pages until the end of the book.
