The most common claims under the False Claims Act include Healthcare Fraud (Medicare & Medicaid Fraud) and Government Contractor Fraud.
Most often whistleblowers are individual who are:
- Nursing Assistants
- Home Health Aids or Workers
- Nursing Home Employees
- Office Managers
- Account Supervisors
- Contract Administrators
However, anyone with knowledge of the fraud can be a whistleblower. It is a requirement, under the False Claims Act, that the whistleblower be the original source of information and be the first to file to be eligible to receive a reward.
The FCA rewards a successful whistleblower by allowing the whistleblower to receive up to 25% of any recovery.
