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.
