Chicago Health Care Fraud False Claims Act Lawyer
Whistleblower lawsuits, under the False Claims Act, are also known as qui tam law suits. These lawsuits create liability for a person or company that commits fraud against any government agency. These frauds include health care fraud, usually under the Medicare program, or the Medicaid program, which is funded jointly by the federal and state government.
Enforcing Legal Practices in Health Care Industries
Health care fraud can be committed by an entity that engages the billing or providing of medical services, products, or equipment. These types of fraud are often committed by:
- Home health care providers
- Insurance companies
- Pharmaceutical companies.
Pharmaceutical fraud may involve kickbacks, which can cause over utilization of certain health care products or services, or the marketing of a drug for an off-label, non-FDA approved use. Health care fraud often involves fraudulent billing of services or the upcoding of the services that were actually provided.
