HCA whistleblower writes book about his "harrowing journey"

One of the major whistleblowers in the qui tam lawsuits against healthcare giant HCA has written a book about his experience, described by his publisher as a "harrowing journey from ordinary citizen to federal informant."

Phillips & Cohen LLP represented the author, John Schilling, and another whistleblower, Jim Alderson, in their qui tam lawsuit against HCA that prompted the largest federal investigation into Medicare fraud. The federal government recovered $1.7 billion as a result of Schilling and Alderson's qui tam lawsuit and several others.

The book, Undercover: How I Went from Company Man to FBI Spy - and Exposed the Worst Healthcare Fraud in U.S. History, was published by AMACOM, the book publishing arm of the American Management Association.

A press release about the book says, "The book recounts how Schilling allied himself with the FBI and the Justice Department and - unable to confide in friends or family - journeyed into an undercover world in which he carried a wire and mapped out offices for secret government raids."

"A compelling account of one man's decision to risk everything for the greater good, this book reveals the personal side of a thankless role that resulted, ultimately, in justice."
