Whistleblowers play a crucial role in ensuring that healthcare frauds are exposed and stopped, and that ill-gotten gains from these frauds are returned to the government on behalf of the American taxpayers who fund federal and state healthcare programs. If you have unique, detailed evidence about a person or company that has engaged in healthcare fraud, please contact us to discuss the possibility of filing a case to address the fraud.
Healthcare fraud cases account for the majority of all False Claims Act cases, and there are many types of healthcare and pharmaceutical frauds that generate whistleblower qui tam cases. The perpetrators of healthcare fraud may include pharmaceutical and medical device companies, doctors, hospitals, mental health clinics, physical therapy clinics, lab companies, urgent care centers, or nursing homes.
