The False Claims Act is one of the most critical and effective tools used by the government to identify fraud and return billions of dollars to government-funded programs. Since January 2009, the government has recovered over $38 billion through the False Claims Act for fraud against the US government and has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in rewards to whistleblowers. If you are aware of Medicare/Medicaid fraud, contact us for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to 15-30% of the amount the government recovers.

TYPES OF MEDICARE FRAUD
FALSE BILLINGS FOR SERVICES OR PRODUCTS NEVER PROVIDED
Such conduct typically involves billing Medicare/Medicaid for doctors visits or hospital stays that never occurred, or for treatments, tests, equipment that were never provided.
BILLING FOR UNNECESSARY SERVICES
Such conduct typically involves ordering unnecessary diagnostic tests, over-authorizing the length of hospital stays, medically unnecessary transportation, treatments, pharmaceuticals, or durable medical equipment that are not medically necessary for the patient.
Such conduct typically includes off-label drug marketing. In these actions, pharmaceutical companies promote drugs for uses that have not been approved by the FDA. While a doctor may legally prescribe the drug for off-label use, the pharmaceutical company may not market for such off-label use. This may occur where pharmaceutical sales representatives directly market the drug to doctors for off-label use, or the pharmaceutical company offers monetary incentives to doctors for the off-label use of the drug.
It is illegal under the False Claims Act for physicians to receive financial incentives for patient referrals. When physicians are rewarded financially for referring patients to hospitals or other health care providers, it can affect their medical judgment, resulting in overutilization of services that drives up health care costs for everyone.
