Federal False Claims Act Video 



We’ve helped whistleblowers earn multiple millions of dollars over the past 30 years. Our whistleblower complaint was the first selected by John Boese for his treatise on Civil False Claims and Qui Tam Actions (now in its fourth edition). That complaint, based on healthcare fraud, resulted in a multi-million dollar settlement.

Today, healthcare is still the number one type of recovery for the federal False Claims Act qui tam recoveries. In 2017, over $3.7 billion was recovered by the federal government on behalf of taxpayers of whistleblowers. Of that sum, $2.4 billion was for federal health claims and some state Medicaid recoveries. 

Health claim recoveries include claims against:

Drug manufacturers, pharmacies, hospitals, labs, and doctors for off-label marketing, upcoding, services that weren’t necessary, and other types of medical fraud. Medical fraud also involves reverse false claims where the recipient of federal funds promises to fulfil certain tasks (such as complying with the terms of a grant request) and then keeps the money without completing the promises.

Some common questions in False Claims Act cases

A few of the many questions we’re asked about qui tam claims are:

  • How can I keep documents while I still work here?
  • Can I keep those documents if there appear to be legal issues with is such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)?
  • Should I report internally to my employer before I blow the whistle
  • How do I protect myself against retaliation? Danz and Associates has been chosen by qui tam firms across the country to represent individuals on their 31 USC 3730 (h) retaliation claims. We work with nationally-recognized co-counsel such as a former career government False Claims prosecutor who has the largest hospital verdict $66.5 million dollars in the history of the country (as of the date of the video). 
  • What would be my share? What makes it worthwhile for me? The answer involves the recovery, the statutory penalties, whether the government intervenes or not, and other factors.
