Healthcare Fraud & Qui Tam Claims

Fraud against government healthcare programs—including Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE—continues to account for the majority of False Claims Act recoveries and whistleblower rewards. In 2015 alone, the Department of Justice recovered $1.9 billion from companies and individuals in the healthcare industry who were alleged to have defrauded the federal healthcare programs. These recoveries resulted in more than $330 million in rewards to whistleblowers who reported healthcare fraud by filing False Claims Act, or qui tam, lawsuits.

Every year, the government recovers billions of dollars in funds as a result of whistleblowers shedding light on healthcare fraud. If you have knowledge of healthcare fraud against a government-funded healthcare program, you could be entitled to receive a portion of the government’s recovery when you file a False Claims Act/qui tam lawsuit.

At Levy Konigsberg, we represent clients nationwide in all types of healthcare fraud qui tam lawsuits. Since 1985, our firm has been recognized as a leader in whistleblower litigation and related matters, and we have secured more than $3 Billion in compensation for our clients.

What Is Healthcare Fraud?

Healthcare accounts for more than $600 billion a year in government spending. It is no surprise that whistleblowers play a vital role in helping the government identify and stop healthcare fraud. But what exactly constitutes healthcare fraud?

In the simplest terms, healthcare fraud includes any attempt by healthcare companies or professionals to defraud the government. This includes overbilling for goods and services, submitting false claims, or making fraudulent statements. Typically, these claims fall under the False Claims Act, which allows whistleblowers to bring qui tam lawsuits and shed light on fraudulent practices that cost taxpayers billions each year.

Some examples of healthcare fraud that may fall under the False Claims Act include:

  • Charging Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE for services not provided
  • Charging government healthcare programs for medically unnecessary services
  • Upcoding or double billing
  • Engaging in pharmaceutical fraud by marketing drugs or medical devices for uses that have not been approved by the FDA
  • Improper payments to physicians or other referral sources, also known as kickbacks, in violation of the Stark Law or the Anti-Kickback Statute
