Ms. Cohen is a former patient who uncovered her allegations by reviewing her explanations of benefits with the help of Medical Bill Consultants, a patient advocate company which also does business as Medical Bill Detectives.
Raphael Katz and Robert W. Sadowski of Sadowski Katz LLP represented the whistleblowers along with their co-counsel Andrew O’Toole of O’Toole + O’Toole PLLC. Mr. Katz said: “This case shows that even individual patients as well as patient advocates have the ability to root out healthcare fraud.”
