Healthcare Whistleblower

In His Own Words: Clark Bolton

Clark Bolton was one of four whistleblowers in the $137.5 million WellCare settlement with the Department of Justice.  The settlement resolved claims that WellCare inflated what it said the company paid for medical care to avoid returning money to Medicaid and knowingly kept overpayments from Florida’s Medicaid program.

In 2007, Clark Bolton moved his family from Connecticut to Florida after taking the job as Supervisor of Special Investigations for WellCare at its headquarters in Tampa. Not long after starting his new position, he realized something was wrong. Clark spoke up and tried to get WellCare to do the right thing, but his efforts were rebuffed.
