Whistleblower lawsuits, under the False Claims Act, are also known as qui tam lawsuits. The False Claims Act creates 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.
THE FALSE CLAIMS FIGHTS HEALTH CARE FRAUD
Health care fraud can be committed by an entity that engages in the billing or providing of medical services, products, or equipment. These types of fraud are often committed by:
- Home Healthcare Agencies
- Home Physician Services
- 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.
