We represent whistleblowers seeking to recover for fraud against the government.
The federal False Claims Act, and similar laws enacted by many states, allow whistleblowers to bring suit to recover funds lost to the government due to fraud, and to receive a percentage of the government’s recovery.
A whistleblower claim will exist when a person providing goods or services to the government, or paid for by the government, fails to provide the goods or services for which they are paid, bills for services or equipment that are not necessary, bills the government for a good or service that is more expensive than the one actually provided, or pays a kickback.
Medical billing fraud, in particular, is a problem that costs the federal and state governments billions of dollars every year. Common fraudulent practices include
— billing for services not performed, or for medical equipment that is not provided
— billing for services or equipment that are not necessary
— “upcoding,” or billing for a good or service that is more expensive than the one actually provided
— paying kickbacks to referring doctors, or to patients
If you are aware of any fraudulent practices relating to goods or services paid for by the federal government or a state government, please contact attorney Matt Miller at 202-789-3960, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
