It is critical you do not engage in any unlawful activity or speak to anyone other than an attorney while collecting evidence as a potential whistleblower. You need to consult with a healthcare attorney who can analyze if violations are truly occurring and what next steps to take. Many schemes exist - the latest I've read about involved a physician who would issue prescriptions for $6,000 wheelchairs, who would take a cut from the company that distributed them.
