Whistleblower suits form basis for reporting on for-profit hospices

Jordan Rau

Jordan Rau of Kaiser Health News has turned a sharp eye on for-profit hospices during the past year, writing about allegedly abusive practices detailed in whistleblower lawsuits.

The whistleblowers – former company insiders – claim that some operators are enrolling patients in hospice care inappropriately in an attempt to maximize Medicare revenues. Lawsuits have been settled out of court, and companies haven’t admitted any wrongdoing.

Here, Rau explains how he came upon the trail of his New York Times story and pursued it, with a few twists and turns, over the course of several years.
