Qui Tam Attorneys Providing Whistleblower Protection Nationwide
Lawyer for Whistleblowers in Qui Tam Cases
Thanks for visiting our website
Medicare and other types of fraud against the Government are far too common in our country. The United States Department of Justice has been prosecuting health care fraud cases with increased frequency. Most whistleblower (or qui tam) cases are initially investigated by private attorneys, who first evaluate the type of fraud, review the regulations involved, and gather the necessary proof. Cases that can be proven are then filed under seal so that the Government can investigate the claims and decide whether to intervene.
Successful whistleblowers have recovered millions in settlement proceeds while protecting their employment rights or status. The Department of Justice has also been criminally prosecuting Medicare fraud and recently created a criminal Strike Force, focused on sending fraudulent actors to prison. As of 2012, this Strike Force alone has charged more than 1,300 defendants with criminal and related fraud charges.
If you suspect fraud, call our law firm or complete the online form for a free consultation with a whistleblower attorney. Your information will be kept confidential. Cases are prosecuted on a contingency basis, where the attorney will advance his/her time and costs, so you are not paying out of pocket to prosecute your case.
Fraud against the Government can come in many forms: e.g., healthcare billing for services not rendered, Medicare/Medicaid upcoding and unbundling, pharmaceutical marketing fraud and kickbacks, Medicaid Best Price violations, tax fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act fraud, and/or SEC violations. An experienced qui tam attorney will help you investigate your case and gather additional information that the Government may require to pursue your case. If you are a health care provider or other professional with knowledge of the fraud, your license could also be in jeopardy if you fail to take action.
