The False Claims Act incentivizes doing good

  • What's the False Claims Act?
    A powerful tool against government fraud, it helps recover billions in stolen taxpayer funds annually. It applies to all government programs, including Medicare, Medicaid, defense, and procurement. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the False Claims Act to combat fraud by military suppliers who were selling sick horses and substituting sawdust as gunpowder. Today, the False Claims Act is utilized against various fraud, including medical overbilling, off-label marketing, and illegal kickbacks.
  • What do whistleblowers gain from reporting fraud?
    Under the False Claims Act, whistleblowers who report fraudulent Medicare/Medicaid billing practices help the federal government recover billions of dollars. In 2022, over $5 billion were recovered, with whistleblowers receiving 15%-25% as reward.
  • What does it cost to report fraud?
    You don't have to pay anything upfront. We only get paid if the case successfully recovers funds. We are committed to partnering with you in the fight against wrongdoing, and we only get paid when you do.
  • Who can be a whistleblower?
    Whistleblowers can be anyone - employees, former employees, contractors, or individuals with privileged information about fraudulent activities.
  • Can whistleblowers remain anonymous?
    In some cases, whistleblowers may remain anonymous during the initial reporting process, but their identities might be disclosed during legal proceedings.
