Medical Device Manufacturer Fraud
Medical device manufacturers have been found guilty of perpetrating fraud against the Federal and State Government costing tax-payers billions of dollars each year.
Common types of medical device manufacturer fraud include:
- Marketing medical devices that have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration;
- Promoting surgical procedures by using a manufacturer’s device(s) when less invasive alternatives are appropriate;
- Advising hospitals to up-code surgical procedures to inflate Medicare reimbursement;
- Paying kickbacks to health care providers to use their devices;
- Charging a Government entity at a higher rate than commercial customers;
- Selling medical devices that are defective or the manufacturer has reason to believe they are defective.
Without the information provided by whistleblowers filing a qui tam claim under the federal and state false claims act, medical device manufacturer fraud would go undetected by the government.
