Whistleblowers who report Medicaid and Medicare fraud are entitled to protection under the False Claims Act. Experienced whistleblower protection lawyers will be able to protect whistleblowers from workplace retaliation. The False Claims Act includes protections against loss of employment, promotions, pay, and other types of discrimination.
To encourage whistleblowers to report fraud, like Medicare and Medicaid fraud, the FCA also allows whistleblowers to receive a percentage of any recovery and attorney’s fees.
Under the False Claims Act, whistleblowers are required to file a claim under seal (meaning in secrete) to allow the government the opportunity to intervene. If the government intervenes, the government prosecutes the claims and the whistleblower(s) is entitled to receive up to 25% of any recovery.
