Indiana Federal False Claims Act Attorney
The False Claims Act is a federal law that allows individuals with intimate knowledge of a business’s illegal conduct, such as an employee, to file a claim on behalf of the government against the business. This qui tam claim is a private action that allows the government to investigate the allegations and conduct of the business, without the business learning the identity of the whistleblower — the employee who exposed the fraud to the government.
Not only is the whistleblower thoroughly protected from any repercussions or retaliation by the employer for filing the qui tam claim — because the case is completely sealed — the whistleblower may be entitled to a percentage of the recovery made by the government if the government decides to join the qui tam lawsuit and ultimately wins.
Qui tam litigation frequently involves federal government contractors and other businesses that defraud the government. Qui tam claims typically involve:
- Price misrepresentations made in negotiation of federal contracts
- Fraudulent billing for services not rendered
- Filing false claims for goods not delivered
- Overbilling for services rendered
- False certification of compliance with product specifications/service specifications
If you believe your employer is involved in a mischarging scheme or other form of health care fraud, it is important to understand your interests can be protected if you report the conduct through the right channels. Our Indianapolis qui tam attorneys can help you understand your rights and guide you through the process. We help employees and other individuals throughout Indiana with reporting all types of qui tam claims, including those involving Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud and other government fraud.
