It is important that you protect yourself, and your employment, from an employer who is engaging in Healthcare Fraud. Owners of medical facilities and top level employees often relay on lower level employees to carry out fraudulently schemes. That is why congress created the False Claims Act.
The False Claims Act incentivized employees to report fraud by allowing the whistleblowers by receive a percent of any recovery, while also protecting the whistleblower from workplace retaliation.
As long as the whistleblower did not create the fraudulent scheme, the FCA affords protections. Failing to report the fraud could expose an employee to extensive legal fees if the fraud is discovery. An experience whistleblower lawyer will know how to help to report the fraud under the False Claims Act.
