Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will provide an overview of False Claims Act (FCA) and will discuss the procedures for filing a FCA case. It will review examples of FCA cases that have been successful and have recovered money for the government and rewarded whistleblowers for reporting fraud.

Why Should You Attend:

A whistleblower or qui tam action can provide financial rewards to individuals who are retaliated against for providing information that a company, hospital or individual has defrauded the government. The primary statutes under which this relief may be sought are the federal and state False Claims Acts (“FCAs”). State and federal governments pay hundreds of billions of dollars each year for pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, hospital care, and nursing home care through Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs. Thus, the FCA is often applied in the health care industry to fight fraud, and specifically fraud committed by hospitals. Whistleblowers who report this fraud receive 15-25% of the amount recovered.

Attend this 60-minute webinar to understand the framework of the FCA (or whistleblower statute), the procedures for filing a FCA case, and the importance in protecting the court’s seal. It will also discuss the pros/cons of bringing a case and important information you should bring to the attention of the government and the attorney representing you.

  • Elements of a FCA case
  • Types of FCA cases brought in hospital and healthcare settings.
