Although South Carolina does not have a state false claims act, the federal FCA can be utilized by South Carolina whistleblowers.
It is important to have specific information about the facts of the fraud. Employees, industry insiders, contractors and experts are often aware of fraudulent schemes against government programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare and Government Contractors.
The information about the fraud is more compelling if the information is current. Although not necessary, internal documents and records are very helpful in proving the fraud.
It is important to follow the requirements of the False Claims Act to eligible for the whistleblower (relator) reward, which can be up to 25% of any recovery.
