SC whistleblowers who report fraud against the government are performing a courageous civic function. The False Claims Act permits whistleblowers to report fraud against the government and rewards whistleblowers by allowing them to receive a percentage of any recover.
Recently, North Greenville University, based in Greenville, South Carolina, agree to pay $2.5 million to resolve a claims under the FCA for submitting false claims to the U.S. Department of Education.
In 2017, the Department of Justice recovered $3.7 Billion Dollars utilizing the False Claims Act. The large majority of that recovery, $3.4 Billion, was through tips by SC whistleblowers. In the health care industry alone, the DOJ recovered $2.4 Billion of fraud and overpayments.
Medicare Fraud, Medicaid Fraud, and Government Contract Fraud represent the most common types of fraud against the government. Miller Law Group regularly represents and protects whistleblowers rights in false claim actions for Medicaid and Medicare fraud, as well as government contract fraud.
