Medicaid/Medicare Fraud Lawsuits Lawyer

As part of the False Claims Act, any fraudulent use of Medicaid or Medicare funds is unlawful and may lead to a Qui Tam lawsuit. Healthcare facilities like hospitals and nursing homes, along with other healthcare providers that offer care to those on Medicaid or Medicare, are expected to ethically use funds received for legitimate services. When a whistleblower comes forward with evidence that Medicare or Medicaid fraud is occurring, they can sue the company on behalf of the U.S. government in a Medicare fraud lawsuit.

The False Claims Act has been in place since 1863, but amendments to this law in 1986 have opened up the opportunity for more people to use this legal action to uncover fraudulent activities. It is estimated that $80 billion in fraud for government healthcare programs occurs each year, money that could be better spent on actual healthcare for elderly and disabled citizens. Filing a whistleblower lawsuit under the False Claims Act for Medicaid and Medicare fraud can stop the misuse of government funds. It can also garner the whistleblower protection against retaliation and up to 30% of the recovered funds from the lawsuit as an incentive.

Healthcare Fraud Lawsuits

When a whistleblower comes forward with evidence of fraud occurring at a Medicare healthcare facility, they are helping reduce the waste of taxpayer money. The reward for this bravery is a percentage of the recovered funds. One Medicare whistleblower lawsuit against HCA Inc. resulted in almost $1.7 billion recovered funds. The whistleblowers in that case shared over $151 million. Medicare fraud includes charging for unneeded services and treatments for patients, and even services the patient never received. The most common type of Medicare fraud revealed in whistleblower lawsuits is:
