The False Claims Act rewards and protects whistleblowers who report false claims against government programs like Medicare and Medicaid. The False Claims Act was created to encourage whistleblower to report fraud by allowing whistleblowers to receive a percentage of any recovery.
Because most fraud goes unreported, Congress incentivized insiders to report fraud by allowing whistleblowers to receive up to 30% of any recovery, and 25% of any recovery when the government intervenes in the case.
It is important to speak with an experienced whistleblower lawyer prior to reporting the fraud. Anonymity is crucial until you know the merits of the claim.
