Whistleblowers and Healthcare Fraud
Health care fraud costs the country tens of billions of dollars a year. Even worse, patients are often harmed in these schemes when their care is subordinated to the greed of healthcare providers perpetrating the fraud. Frauds include false billing, improper diagnoses, kickbacks, sales of unapproved medication and substandard medical equipment, and accounting and reporting fraud. Whistleblowers play a huge role in combatting healthcare fraud when they step forward and inform the government of false claims. In turn, the government rewards whistleblowers for their efforts and information when the government recovers from wrongdoers.
The California whistleblower (also known as qui tam) lawyers at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent plaintiffs and whistleblowers in healthcare fraud and False Claims Act (FCA) cases every day. If you or a loved one has information regarding invalid or false claims under the Medicare or Medicaid programs, call the Evans Law Firm today at (415)441-8669 and we can help.
Last year in total the DOJ recovered more than $4.7 billion in whistleblower/qui tam cases brought under the False Claims Act. The rewards for whistleblowers are big too. In the past six years, the government paid out $3 billion in whistleblower awards. While the cases are lengthy and complex, potential rewards are worth the effort. If you have evidence of false claims against the government, don’t just pick up a phone and call the relevant agency; if you do that, you will jeopardize your chances at a reward. Call experienced counsel instead. The whistleblower attorneys at Evans Law Firm know what the government looks for in these cases and can effectively guide a case through initial contact with government agents, application, investigation and discovery and trial.
