Introduction

Qui Tam cases are types of legal proceedings that involve individuals acting as whistleblowers to alert the government on fraudulent activities. Such types of cases generally fall under the False Claims Act, which makes it a crime for individuals and companies to defraud the government through false claims or defense contracts. Healthcare is one sector that is particularly at risk due to these types of activities, with Qui Tam cases commonly involving false healthcare expenses and claims submitted to the government in order to receive payment from taxpayer money. In recent years, there have been significant efforts by lawmakers to crack down on such frauds, showing that Qui Tam actions can help prevent the abuse and fraud of precious public funds from the U.S. Treasury.

False claim typical cases

Qui Tam cases fall under the False Claims Act and involve fraud against the government. These types of legal disputes can involve financial waste in defense contracts, healthcare reimbursement claims, or misuse of military funds. Despite the hefty penalties associated with prosecution, large corporations continue to employ fraudulent practices regularly. If those responsible can not be brought to justice through civil court proceedings, we must rely on a brave few to stand up and report their employers in order to prevent public dollars from being wasted.  Here are some of the various types of cases that may qualify.

  • Individual taxpayer fraud in excess of 2 million dollars
  • Healthcare false claims (Medicare/Medicaid)
  • Defense contractor fraud
  • IRS fraud
  • SEC fraud
  • Other
