False Claims Act Cases Against Healthcare Industry
Government Whistleblower Awards Increasing
Whistleblowers initiate over 80% of all healthcare fraud cases brought under the False Claims Act in this country. Historically, the government has recovered over $30 billion in these actions and paid out close to $5 billion in rewards. The cases and rewards keep coming: within the last six months the government announced two awards of over $100 million apiece. Typically, healthcare false claims cases involve false claims for reimbursement, kickbacks, and other fraudulent schemes against the government’s Medicare and Medicaid programs.
The California and San Francisco whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent whistleblowers with information of false claims submitted to the government by a variety of healthcare providers including pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, labs, clinics, hospitals, and physician groups. We also handle whistleblower cases before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding offshore tax avoidance schemes and other tax fraud and before the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in securities and investment fraud cases. If you have credible information of false claims or any other whistleblower case in California, call us today at (415)441-8669 and we can help.
Whatever kind of information you have, do not make any calls to the government until you have consulted with counsel. Otherwise you may miss out on an award. To be eligible for a reward under the False Claims Act and other whistleblower programs you must report the fraud through appropriate and timely court filings or an application addressed to the appropriate office of the applicable government agency. This is where the California whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. can help. Out attorneys know the appropriate procedures for your type of allegation and know how to organize and present your credible, original information and documentation in the most effective way toward securing an eventual reward. The law may also protect you if your employer retaliates against you for your whistleblowing and attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. can represent you in any action for wrongful termination as well as in your underling whistleblower case.
