Representing Health Care Providers In False Claims Act And Qui Tam

Why Qui Tam Defense Is Difficult
Any health care provider that bills Medicare or Medicaid, or related programs under a VA health benefit or otherwise, may face prosecution under the False Claims Act. The government may bring a case against a provider to submit a false claim under either a civil proceeding or a criminal proceeding.
These cases are highly technical and turn on the technicalities of the program regulatory framework. A comprehensive review of the available records and knowledge of the health care laws, rules and regulations are mandatory for a firm to assist in such a case.
The Struggles Of Having A Whistleblower
Handling a whistleblower case is highly taxing on a company, and facing significant penalties because of the actions of an employee is hard to reconcile. It can feel like a betrayal, which is difficult to resolve. However, simply because you face the accusation does not mean it is true.
